Suwon Continental Cup: Golden Eaglets To Face Korea After England, Iran Defeats | Nigeria News Today. Your online Nigerian Newspaper f


Nigeria's U-17 side, the Golden Eaglets, will take on hosts South Korea on Saturday in their last game at the on-going U-19 Suwon Continental Cup.

The five-time FIFA U-17 World Cup champions will hope to secure their first win of the tournament after losing 1-0 to Iran in their second game on Thursday.

They had earlier lost their first game 8-1 to England.

Iran's only goal was scored by Reza Shekari in the 77th minute from the penalty spot after Eaglets goalkeeper Christian Nwoke tripped Reza Jafari inside the box.

Two minutes later, the Eaglets got their own penalty but second half substitute Onyemachi Sopuruchukwu failed to beat Iranian goalkeeper Nima Mirzazad.

With two losses, the Eaglets are currently bottom in the four-team log.
