CHAN Eagles to face Kanopillars today in a friendly match as they continue preparations for the weekend qualifier against Benin Republic
In their last friendly against Kanopillars feeders team some days ago, MFM FC forward Sikiru Olatunbosun and goal scorer Samuel Matthias from Gombe United shone for the home-based Eagles.
CHAN Eagles shot in front through midfielder Samuel Matthias after nine minutes.
Junior Pillars drew level in the 27th minute through captain Awalu Ali aka Mallam after he cashed in on a mix-up in the Eagles defence.
Alhassan Ibrahim ‘Muazzam’ restored the Eagles lead in the 42nd minute courtesy of a superb assist by Kingsley Eduwo, before the Akwa United forward got his brace a minute to the interval.
In the second half the Eagles made several changes bringing in players like goalkeeper Theophilus Afelokhai, Raphael Anyangbe, Nasiru Sani, Prince Aggreh and Ezekiel Golbe.
But even against a tired feeders team, they failed to add to the tally.
CHAN Eagles start XI: Ikechukwu Ezenwa – Osas Okoro, Chima Akas, Ariwachukwu, Stephen Eze – Afeez Aremu, Samuel Matthias – Alhassan Ibrahim, Sikiru Olatunbosun, Kingsley Eduwo – Mfon Udoh

The match is billed to take place later today in Kano
