Victor Osimhen snatched a later winner for Nigeria’s Flying Eagles to beat home team Sudan 2-1 Sunday in a 2017 U20 AFCON qualifier at the El Merriekh Stadium in Khartoum.
Sudan’s Young Falcons held their own for most part of this clash against a Flying Eagles side, who paraded several stars from Nigeria’s FIFA U17 World Cup triumph last year including Osimhen, who is bound for German Bundesliga side Wolfsburg.
The return leg will be played in Nigeria in a fortnight with the overall winners advancing to the U20 AFCON in Zambia in February.
The hosts took the lead through striker Mohamed after 27 minutes against the run of play. However, Nigeria drew level in the 67th minute through Samuel Chukwueze and 4 minutes from time, Osimhen rose to the occasion to deal a crushing blow on the Falcons.
