The Flying Eagles of Nigeria yesterday night surpassed all expectations by sending hosts Nation Argentina out of this year’s FIFA U-20 World Cup after recording a 2-0 win in the round of 16.

Two Second-half goals from Ibrahim Muhammed and Haliru Sarki saw the Ladan Bosso tutored side edge out the six times World Cup winners in what was the first time they would defeat a South American team since their debut in the competition in 1983.

After a goalless first half, the Flying Eagles opened scoring in the 61st minute through Muhammed, and after protecting the lead for as long as possible Sarki added the second goal in the 92nd minute to send Nigeria into the last eight.

The Flying Eagles will now take on either Ecuador or South Korea in the quarter-finals billed for Sunday, June 4.
