FC Midtjylland striker, Paul Onuachu opened his Super Eagles account today with a fine strike just about 23 seconds into the game.
The goal was not just one of Nigeria’s fastest goals in a match but also a beauty. “The dignitaries had barely made their way back to their seats from the introduction of the teams and the national anthems that Paul Onuachu fired Nigeria into the lead.”
You would have expected a goal fest with that 1st minute goal but unfortunately, that was the last time the ball would have to go into the back of the net. John Ogu was impressive in the midfield and skipper, Leon Balogun was also solid at the back for the Eagles. New boy Paul Onuachu was also very impressive asides from the goal he had a very good game.
The Super Eagles will play their next series of games in the FIFA free calendar which will be between June 3 – 11 few days before the start of the AFCON 2019 tournament.
