spanked Dreamland Football Academy from Ukwa West LG of Abia State, 6-2 in a trial match played at the Practice Pitch of the U.J Esuene Stadium in Calabar on Saturday.
The Eaglets dominated their opponents throughout the game to the delight of the neutral fans and officials; their performance was an improvement on their first practice game when they were forced to a 1-1 draw by Calabar Selected last Thursday.
Against Dreamland, the players were purposeful with the strikers finally showing that they have killer instincts by scoring three goals in each of the two halves.
The two goals conceded were against the run of play due to momentary loss of concentration in the defence.
Head coach, Manu Garba (MFR) said the team is still a work in progress, saying that the response of his wards to training and performances in the two practice matches so far are signs of better things to come.
