By Adebayo Williams

Nigeria’s U-17 team, Golden Eaglets were mauled 8-1 by England’s U-20 team at the Suwon Continental Cup.  Manu Garba’s boys conceded in the 19th minute when Young Lions’ captain Taylor Moore opened scoring. Barely a minute later Barnsley striker Adam Armstrong bagged the first of his hat-trick and Chelsea forward Solanke made it 3-0. The first half scoring was capped off by an Armstrong second.

In the second period, the on-loan Newcastle striker got his hat-trick with Patrick Roberts recording a brace and a Callum Connolly lone strike a minute after the restart.

Golden Eaglets, playing six Nigerians (Fikayo Tomori, Ovie Ejaria, Josh Onomah, Ademola Lookman and Solanke) in Paul William’s squad managed to get a solitary goal after they had let in six goals.

The Golden Eaglets will look to improve when the confront Iran on Thursday in their second match of the four-team invitational tourney, before facing South Korea to cap off the event.
