Ten-man TikiTaka Academy from Nigeria have sensationally zoomed into the last four of this year’s Gothia Cup after they upstaged Osasco of Brazil 1-0 tonight.
The Nigerian team’s match winner was Ohaka Stanley after 12 minutes.
However, they were reduced to 10 players two minutes from full time when the exciting Aminu Yahya was sent off after a second booking.
It was a keenly fought contest with the Brazilians enjoying a lot of the ball, but they failed to really hurt the spirited Nigerian youngsters.
The semi-final and final will be played tomorrow to bring the curtains down on this truly global youth football competition.
