Sudan bundle Flying Eagles out of CAF U-20 Nations Cup

By Femi Adefioye, Lagos

The Flying Eagles have been bundled out of the forthcoming AFCON U-20 Nations Cup in Zambia.

At the return leg match played at the Teslim Balogun Stadium, in Lagoson Saturday, the Flying Eagles suffered a shock 3-4 loss to Sudan.

The Nigerian team had won the first leg away fixture in Khartoum a fortnight ago with many expecting that the team will seal their place in Zambia in an emphatic style in Lagos.

However that was not the case as a more purposeful display by the Sudanese saw them snatch the ticket via the away goals rule as aggregate scores stood at 5-5.
