The Nigeria Olympic Eagles are through to the 2019 U23 AFCON following their 5-0 defeat of Sudan on Tuesday at the Stephen Keshi Stadium.

Having lost the first leg in Omdurman by a lone goal, the Nigeria U23s progressed with a 5-1 aggregate scoreline.

A brace from Effiong Ndifreke and one each from Taiwo Awoniyi, Sunday Faleye, and Ibrahim Sunusi sealed Nigeria’s place at the forthcoming tournament billed to be held in Egypt later in the year.

It was Awoniyi that put the Nigeria U23 team ahead just eight minutes after kickoff.
