Golden Eaglets played a goalless draw with Giant Brillars FC of Enugu, a Nigeria National League side on Tuesday and will be up against another team on Wednesday evening at the FIFA Goal Project, MKO Abiola Stadium, Abuja as the race and battle for shirts ahead of the WAFU Under 17 Championship gathers momentum.
It was a very thrilling game of an end to end attacking football from both sides.
Golden Eaglets could not really find their rhythm in the first half and the visitors, who paraded bigger players were dominant and looked more dangerous to hurt the five- time world champions.
Sadly, there was an apprehension at the beginning of the game when a central defender of Giant Brillars Fc appeared to have fractured his ankle, but it was later discovered that it was a dislocation.
However, on resumption in the second half, the energetic Eaglets took complete control of the game, dictating the pace, while Giant Brillars only resorted to occasional counter attacks which failed to rattle the defence of the Eaglets.
