Flying Eagles today stepped up their preparation for next month’s U20 AFCON in Egypt after they trounced Galadima Academy of Abuja 6-1 in a test game.
Captain Ibrahim Yahaya was quick off the mark when he hit target as early as the first minute.
Nasarawa United striker Francis Ayuba answered critics who believe he is not good enough with a goal with wingers Olamilekan Adams, Thompson Ishaka from the UK and midfielder Nicholas Jonathan also on the scoresheet.
However, questions continued to be asked how the Flying Eagles will fare against higher level opposition.
Coach Ladan Bosso now has a week to make up his mind about his final 21-man squad for the U20 AFCON.
The Flying Eagles open their campaign on February 19 in Cairo against fellow West Africans Senegal, while hosts Egypt battle Mozambique in another Group A clash.
The semifinalists in Egypt will advance to the 2023 U20 FIFA World Cup in Indonesia in May.
