Black Satelites clip Flying Eagles wings

Nigeria’s chances of qualifying for the CAF U20 hangs on a thread after a narrow 1-0 loss to the Black Satellites of Ghana.

Despite creating a few chances especially in the first half, the Flying Eagles fell to a well taken freekick in the 82nd minute by
Precious Noah.

Nigeria had the better chances in the opening half with Chukwubuikem Ikwuemesi and Wisdom Ubani looking lively in the opening exchanges.

Twice they scored in th first half but both goals were disallowed.

Wisdom Ubani again came close with a freekick but that was all the team could muster as Ghana upped the ante in the closing exchanges and
got a freekick which they converted to send Nigeria on the brink of elimination.

With one point from two games, Nigeria will hope Ghana beat Ivory Coast with a two goal margin to have any hope of progress to the next
