Nigeria 4 Montenegro 2: Olusegun Olakunle scores three as Golden Eaglets return to winning ways

Olusegun Olakunle scored three goals to help Nigeria’s Golden Eaglet win 4-2 against Montenegro in the UEFA Assist International Tournament in Antalya, Turkey on Thursday.

After a shocking 3-0 defeat in their first game against Senegal, Manu Garba boys needed a response and they did in grandstyle with a convincing victory over their European counterparts.

Olusegun Olakunle scored three goals and Akinsola Babtunde scored one to restore Golden Eaglets chances of making it to the knockout stages.

A win for Nigeria against Angola in their last game will guarantee a place in the knockout stages regardless of the outcome of the game involving Senegal and Montenegro.
