Nigeria offers Italy and qualifies!

After their victory against the Dominican Republic (2-1), Nigeria continues! This Wednesday, the Flying Eagles offered themselves the scalp of Italy (2-0) to qualify for the round of 16 of the U20 World Cup.

However, it was indeed the 3rd of the last CAN U20 who trembled first: first on a shot from the restless Pafundi who grazed the frame, and especially on a recovery from Casadei in the middle of the surface, sent on the bar! This heatstroke had the merit of waking up Ladan Bosso’s foals. On a counter, Sunday played the shot badly against the empty goal and saw his long shot pushed back on the line, then Lawal especially saw the goalkeeper divert his power regained in a tight angle before the break.

After a new scare with a penalty for Italy canceled by the VAR due to a transalpine hand, the Nigerians were again incisive when they returned from the locker room: on a perfect cross, Emmanuel, who entered at half-time, found Lawal who opened the scoring with a diving header from close range (0-1, 61e). Faced with an opponent who pushed, the Flying Eagles then suffered but without breaking and Sunday ended up folding the case in added time (2-0). Even before Brazil-Dominican Republic in the evening and the match against the Brazilians on Saturday, they are guaranteed to participate in the round of 16!
