Flying Eagles Stun Italy 2 – Nil To Book FIFA U20 Round Of 16 Ticket

The Flying Eagles have defeated Italy in a highly impressive encounter on matchday two of the 2023 FIFA U20 World Cup in Argentina.

Salem Fago and Jude Sunday scored their first goals to help Nigeria beat Italy 2-0 in the Group D matchday 2 clash at the Estadio Malvinas Argentinas on Wednesday evening.

The 20-year-old had been largely ineffective in the 53 minutes he was on the pitch during the Flying Eagles 2-1 win over the Dominican Republic on Sunday night.

But he was the hero as Nigeria booked their ticket to the knockout rounds with their second consecutive match at the tournament.

Nigeria’s Daniel Daga had the sight of the goal, but his low drive went off target. The Flying Eagles had done a great job keeping out an Italian team that scored three times in the opening 30 minutes against Brazil on matchday one.
