Flying Eagles star Daga Daniel has claimed his second man of the match award at the ongoing WAFU B Tournament after helping Nigeria secure a 2-1 semifinal win against Ivory Coast on Tuesday.

The FC Rocket midfielder who is likened to Chelsea superstar Ngolo Kante was again a force in the Flying Eagles’ midfield as they battled through a 2-1 win against a tough Ivorians.

Daga Daniel was on the pitch the entire duration of the game mopping things and running the show as Flying Eagles booked a ticket to the 2023 Africa U-20 tournament to be held in Egypt.

He was the scorer of Nigeria’s first goal while Ibrahim Yahaya converted a spot-kick to hand Nigeria the 2-1 extra-time win.

And for his effort, Daga Daniel was named the man of the match, the award is his second at the tournament.

He won his first in Nigeria’s second group game against Burkina Faso – this means Daga Daniel has won the man of the match award in two of the three games the Flying Eagles have played at the tournament.
