- Advertisment -

Nigeria Golden Eaglets shot to the top of the Continental Cup Tournament after defeating Brazil 2-1 in Suwon, South Korea, Friday.

The team leads the four-nation tournament with four points following its 1-1 draw with hosts South Korea on Wednesday.

Kingsley Michael and Chukwudi Agor scored two first half goals, while David Enogela conceded a second-half own goal.

The team was boosted with the arrival of skipper Kelechi Nwakali, who was a 54th minute substitute in the match.

Nigeria went into the lead through Michael in the 20th minute, when he delicately placed the ball behind Juliano after the burly goalkeeper deflected Victor Oshimen’s powerful shot into his path.

The reigning world champions scored again 12 minutes later when Osimhen laid the ball on the path of Agor who shot from acute angle to score his first goal in national team colours.

The Brazilians swooped on the Eaglets in the second half and Evander saw his shot ricocheted off the bar in the 54th minute and goalkeeper Udoh Akpan was at his best to punch away Vitinho’s volley in the 60th minute.
