The Flying Eagles of Nigeria strode confidently into the next round of the on-going FIFA U-20 World cup, beating Hungary 2-0 for their second straight win in group E.
Two goals from Taiwo Awoniyi, one in each half, secured victory for Nigeria and the chance to face Germany in the round of 16.
The first of Awoniyi’s two strikes came in the 33rdminute after a wonderful cross from Sunday Godwin. The striker added another at the start of the second half, finishing a long throw from goalkeeper Enaholo with a wonderful solo effort.
Germany are one of the teams to beat at this tournament having scored 13 goals and conceded just two on their road to the knockout stage.
However, the Flying Eagles will be hoping to cause a major upset when the sides square up in the round of 16.
In the other game in group E, Brazil’s U-20 team beat North Korea U20, 3-0 to top the group and qualify with 9 points.
Meanwhile, the Super Falcons will begin their campaign playing Sweden in Group D in the FIFA Women’s World Cup tomorrow, June 8.
