Nigerian U17s under the auspices of TikiTaka Monday got off to a winning start at this year’s Gothia Cup in Sweden with Alhassan Yusuf again the star of a 2-0 win over Swedish club Hammarby IF.
Alhassan Yusuf lived up to his pre-tournament billing when he opened scoring for the Nigerian team off a goalmouth scramble after seven minutes.
Five minutes later, the gifted midfielder followed up with a brilliant solo goal for his brace, when he fired home from an acute angle .
He was denied a hat-trick when another goal by him in the second half was chalked off for offside.
The Nigerian U17s will next take on Yeovil Town of England tomorrow afternoon in continuation of the competition.
