U-20 World Cup: Nigeria’s Flying Eagles beat Argentina, through to quarterfinals

The Nigeria’s Flying Eagles are through to the quarterfinals of the FIFA U-20 World Cup after beating Argentina 2-0 to send the tournament hosts out of the championship.

Argentina is the most successful nation in the FIFA U-20 World Cup, winning the competition a record six times. The team has participated in 17 of the 23 World Championship events, since the 1979 edition, which they won.

Ibrahim Muhammad opened the scoring for Ladan Bosso’s boys on 61 minutes before Rilwanu Sarki made it 2-0 in the first minute of added time to send the record six-time U-20 world champions packing from the tournament.

Up next for the Flying Eagles is a quarterfinal clash against either Ecuador or South Korea.
