After thrashing Sia-One academy 4-1, Dabo Babes 5-0 and a Kaduna State –selected side 6-2 in test games, football fans left the FIFA Goal Project, Abuja disappointed Thursday morning as the Flying Eagles failed to assuage their thirst for goals against Nigeria National League side, Dreams FC.
For the first time in four matches, the Emmanuel Amuneke –tutored side failed to find the back of the net, but they gave the fans plenty to savour in ninety minutes against a very good Dreams FC of Makurdi.
Thursday’s match, according to Coach Amuneke, provided the stiffest test for his boys but he admits that it came at the right time as the team intensifies preparation for their May 22 Africa U-20 Cup of Nations qualifier against Burundi in Bujumbura.
Osimhen had two shots on goal from long range. Chukwueze fired a weak shot from just outside the area while Kingsley Michael saw his effort go wide from the edge of the box. Dreams FC also had their chances but Flying Eagles goalkeeper Akpan Udoh was always up to the task thwarting all their efforts.
It ended 0-0 at full time and left former NFF board member Dominic Iorfa who is the owner of Dreams FC, satisfied with the performance of his boys.
The Flying Eagles will tackle their counterparts from Burundi in the first leg of the Africa U-20 Cup of Nations qualifying fixture on May 22 in Bujumbura while the second leg will take place in Nigeria two weeks after.
