The Flying Eagles defeated Guinea Bissau 1-0, (3-2) on aggregate and progressed to the next round of the U-20 African Cup of Nations (AFCON).
The Flying Eagles played out a 2-2 draw away against Guinea Bissau in the first leg at the September 24 Stadium on Saturday, May 12 to take an away goal advantage into the second leg in Nigeria.
Paul Aigbogun put out a strong line up which included Wasiu Alalade who scored a brace in the first leg encounter.
