Golden Eaglets came from behind twice to thump Hungary 4-2 in World Cup opener

Nigeria Golden Eaglets have kick-started their 2019 FIFA U17 World Cup campaign on a winning note with a 4-2 defeat of Hungary on Saturday night at the Estadio Olympico, Goiania.

Gyorgy Komaromi gave Hungary the lead inside three minutes as he poked home in the area after the Nigerian defense was caught flat-footed.


 

Two goals in two minutes saw Nigeria turn the game on its head when Ibrahim Usman headed home Sa’ad’s corner to level before Oluwatimilehin Adeniyi headed home at the far post ten minutes before regulation time.

 

Captain Samson Tijani got his brace on the night with a deflected free-kick as Manu Garba side ran out 4-2 winners.

 

Nigeria will next play Ecuador on Tuesday, 9 pm in their second group stage match.
