Nigeria 2-2 Uzbekistan.
The match was drawn.
The Uzbekistan Olympic (U-23) team gave the Nigeria U-20 team (Flying Eagles) a good match on Tuesday as the Nigerians played their first friendly game of a 25-day training camp in Antalya, Turkey.
Omo Ojabu put Nigeria in the lead after 28 minutes but the Uzbeks equalized before the end of the first half through a disputed corner kick.
Pacy winger Terry Envoh restored Nigeria’s lead in the 78th minute only for the Europeans to level four minutes to the end.
“It was a very good match for my team. I hope we can get more matches like this. They gave us a tough time and it’s good for my boys”, said Coach John Obuh.
The Flying Eagles will kick off their campaign in the 17th African Youth Championship starting on March 18 with a game against the reigning champions of the world and perennial rivals, Ghana.
