Happy Sunday to y'all and I hope today goes well as the Flying Eagles are set to tackle Senegal to be crowned the African kings at U20 level.
It's been a tournament to remember for the young lads even though the last two games haven't exaclty been as good as the first two where they played some incredible football blasting Senegal 3-1 in the first game of the competition and then whooping Congo 4-1 despite playing 70 minutes a man down after Joshua Enaholo was sent off.
You can read my big match feature here where I preview the game Nigeria v Senegal preview, and If you are interested in stats, I've also done something as regards the game in numbers: Nigeria vs Senegal in numbers
Kano Pillars were in Morocco for the first leg of the CAF Champions League game with Moghreb Tetaoun and got hammered 4-0 by the home side. It was a sad night for the guys because I felt they should have done better. They were all over the place in the first half conceding three careless goals in the process.
The second half was a bit better as they controlled majority of it even though MAT got another goal, but one would wonder Coach Okey Emordi's tactics in the first half. Surely it's tie over if you ask me but Pillars were the architects of their misfortune. They need to learn how to play away from home on the continent. Looks like the lessons of last year's elimination at the hands of AS Vita of Congo wasn't learnt.
Can they turn it around in Kano, I doubt much.
Some games in the Glo Premier League took place yesterday, Kwara United got a point in Bauchi courtesy a Segun Alebiosu late goal to tie the game 1-1. Emenike Onouha scored from the spot for Wikki before Kwara got the equaliser late on
Sharks of Port-Harcourt beat Akwa United 1-0 with Yusuf Jaiyeola scoring the only goal.
More games will be played today.
