The Flying Eagles continued the preparation for the 2020 WAFU B with a hard-fought 4-2 win over Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) side Nasarawa United at the FIFA Goal Project pitch in Abuja.

A brace from centre back Chris Nweze and goals from Azeez Oseni and Wisdom Ubani ensured the team took the winning to six from the same number of games.

Nasarawa United coach Bala Nkiyu used the game to test his new recruits Nanen Imenger and Austin Ayaya but it was the Flying Eagles that did the early running.

Nasawara responded and duly got on level terms after some beautiful work in midfield that set up Abdullahi Aliyu to hit a fierce shot past Kolawale Ridwan in the Flying Eagles post in the 17th minute.

Azeez Oseni restored the Flying Eagles lead with a beautiful shot but the lead lasted only ten minutes as Silas Nwankwo profited from some slack defending to equalise for Nasarawa.

Chris Nweze got his brace from the spot in the 30th minute after the electric Wisdom Ubani was upended in the box. Ubani capped a wonderful performance with Flying Eagles fourth on the night in the 56th minute as the Flying Eagles remain unbeaten in six test games so far.
