International Dream Cup Mexico 1 Nigeria 3: Sopuruchukwu Steals The Show; On Target & Wins Penalty

International Dream Cup Mexico 1 Nigeria 3: Sopuruchukwu Steals The Show; On Target & Wins Penalty
Nigeria U16s, otherwise known as the Future Eagles, recorded an impressive 3-1 win over Mexico in their opening game of the International Dream Cup 2019 on Wednesday morning.

The Haruna Ilerika-led side dominated the first half but had to wait until the 45th minute before breaking the deadlock.

Future Eagles number seven Egesionu Sopuruchukwu literally walked the ball into the net, profiting from a rebound after the Mexico goalkeeper had saved his initial effort

Sopuruchukwu was the architect of the second goal, seven minutes into the second half, when he was brought down in the area and the referee pointed to the spot.

He was still receiving treatment on the sidelines when captain Adeleke Oluwatobi sent the goalkeeper the wrong way to make it 2-0.

In the 72nd minute, Adeyeye Damilola increased the lead with a close range effort, before Mexico number ten scored the pick of the goals with a stunning free-kick.

In their next fixture, Nigeria will face host Japan on June 14 before their last game against Romania two days later.

Fifa should force host countries to fill each stadium during games or dont get any money. In Nigeria, it would a piece of cake. Just host it in Kano and have political party rally just before the game.

I keep saying, we need to take drastic measures.

1. Only players that were registered at the U13 or U15 or U 17level should progress to the U20 team. We can have a large database of players. Players born in diaspora can be exempted from registering
2. Late bloomers can play for the U23 team.

what is sad is that these kids play a more watchable brand of soccer than our U20 agbayas. They are better coached and have a more discernible pattern of play

They will need a very good agent to scale through the "selection" process.

Oh please. :roll:
You saw Iheanacho in the U13's but that didn't stop you from insinuating that the boy was overage a few short years later when he featured for the U17 team

Took Pinnick four plus years to send the future Eagles to a tournament. After he tossed aside the program started by Maigari.
