By Niyi Busari
Sudan Under 23 team beats Nigeria 1-0 in the first leg of the Under 23 African Cup of Nations qualifier decided at the El Merriech Staduim in Omdurman, BSNSports.com.ng report.
BSN Sports report that the Nigeria U23 Eagles enjoyed better possession in the first half, but failed to take their chances. Former MFM FC striker, Stephen Odey and Taiwo Awoniyi missed couple of chances before Sudan scored the lone goal in the dying minute of the first half.
However, there will be so much to play for in the return leg at the Stephen Keshi Stadium on Tuesday 10th September, 2019.
The loss means, Nigeria U23 team will have to score two goals without conceding and will have to score three if Sudan scores one goal in Nigeria next Tuesday.
