The Flying Eagles of Nigeria are out of the U-20 World Cup after suffering a devastating 2-0 loss to Brazil tonight. We got to see Brazil get their goals in the first half of the match as Jean Pedroso and Marquinhos both got on the score sheet in the 43rd and 45+2 minute respectively.
Nigeria played well in the game but their weakness was clearly exposed as they failed to get a single goal against a tough opponent.
They had several opportunities to get a lot of goals in the game but for some reason they failed to convert their chances.
They will only have themselves to blame for this shameful defeat, as their performance tonight goes to show the poor state of football in the Nigeria men’s national team both senior and junior level.
