Wednesday football recap: Flying Eagles, Warri Wolves and more

Beautiful morning to y'all. Sorry I'm blogging now, yesterday was stressful to say the least. I had to live tweet the Flying Eagles game and still run the commentary for a french speaking channel in English.

It wasn't funny at all. Anyways enough of my troubles and back to the main gist. Off course you would know by now that the Flying Eagles have qualified for the final of the 2015 Africa Youth Championship after edging out Ghana's Black Satellites by 2-0.

The game was scrappy to say the least, Ghana had tons of chances but couldn't score, I thought they played better than the Flying Eagles overall but Nigeria were more decisive.

Obinna Nwobodo's header was a pitch and Musa Muhammed also scored his fourth goal of the tournament, his fourth penalty to put it in context to become the highest goal scorer at the tournament.
