Nigeria men’s U-23 team has booked a place in the 2019 Africa U23 Nations Cup.
The Dream Eagles were too good for their opponents from Sudan as they scored five unreplied goals at the Stephen Keshi Stadium in Asaba in the second leg of the last Africa U-23 Nations Cup qualifiers on Tuesday.
Goals from Taiwo Awoniyi, a brace from Ndifreke Effiong, a goal Faleye Sunday and a nice finish from the 2019 NPFL joint top scorer Sunusi Ibrahim completed a 5-0 win for a 5-1 aggregate win against the Sudanese.
