Nigeria’s Under-20 team, the Flying Eagles we knocked out of the 2023 Under-20 Africa Cup of Nations after their 1-0 loss to Gambia in the semifinal.
Gambia went in front after just seven minutes. But Nigeria managed to find their feet. The Flying Eagles made 21 attempts at goal, but only four were on target. Ahmed Abdullahi had the chance to equalize for Nigeria, but he missed his penalty.
Soccernet rates the performances of the players.
Chijioke Aniagboso 6/10: Nigeria’s shot-stopper had a relatively easy day. Asides from the early goal, he had very little to do.
