Remo Stars Hold Flying Eagles


Nigeria U-20s were held to a 2-2 draw by Ijebu Ode based outfit Remo Stars in a friendly match played on Wednesday evening at the Teslim Balogun Stadium.

An own goal scored by Oche Salefu and a strike from Orji Okonkwo put the Flying Eagles ahead before goals from Ekenne Awaze and Onu handed Remo Stars a share of the spoils from the encounter that saw Samuel Chukwueze missing a penalty kick.

The Flying Eagles who hold a 2-1 advantage against Sudan, need a draw to see off the opponents to qualify for the African Youth Championship in Zambia next year.

Recall that Osimhen grabbed the winner in Omdurman a forth night ago and is expected to lead the U-20 attack on Saturday at the Teslim Balogun Stadium.

The Flying Eagles are the defending champions of the competition.
