The Flying Eagles of Nigeria secured their spot in the quarter final of the ongoing Africa U20 Cup of Nations with a 2-0 win over Mozambique in their final group games.
Nigeria started the game on the front foot but had to wait till the 33rd minute before breaking the deadlock with Samson Lawal hitting an unstoppable drive from range.
One became two four minutes before the break when another long range effort from Mohammed Beji left the goalkeeper of Mozambique in no man’s land, minutes after Ayuba Francis wasted a good chance.
Nigeria sealed their spot in the next round courtesy of the win but coach Ladan Bosso will be worried over the wastefulness of his team, as they had chances to score more goals but failed to take it in the second half.
Qualification for the quarters means they are now one win away from sealing a spot at the U20 World Cup. In the other group game host Egypt lost 0-4 to Senegal, who finished with maximum points in the group without conceding a goal.
