Nigeria U20 take charge of Group A

Nigeria on Sunday lived up to their billing as favorites at the U20 Africa Youth Championship when the despatched hosts Senegal with a 3 – 1 scoreline in the opening match of the tournament.

Nigeria did not allow the hosts to settle and where already two goals ahead in the 10th minute and held on to the lead until half time despite some relentless pressure from the hosts.

Senegal finally made a breakthrough but Nigeria added another immediately after to kill the game.

In the late kick off, Congo rallied from behind to hold Ivory Coast to a 1 – 1 draw.

Group B will be in action on Monday with South Africa playing Ghana while Zambia take on Mali.
