Nigeria’s Golden Eaglets have brushed aside the challenge of Brazil to move to the top of the standings at the Suwon Continental Cup Tournament in South Korea.
In a keenly contested encounter, the Eaglets came out tops beating their Brazilian counterpart by a 2-1 scoreline.
The Eaglets now lead the standings with 4 points from two games after their opening 1-1 draw with host nation, South Korea.
The Eaglets were the quickest out of the blocks and raced into a two-goal first half advantage before an own goal from David Enogela halved the lead.
The Eaglets were boosted with the arrival of skipper Kelechi Nwakali, who was a 54th minute substitute.
Despite a desperate attempt by the Brazilians to clinch a late equalizer, the Eaglets hung on the claim victory.
