International Dream Cup: Future Eagles lose 1-4 to Japan



Nigeria’s Under-15 boys on Friday lost their second match of the 2019 International Dream Cup tournament to host nation Japan 1-4 at the Yurtec Stadium in Miyagi.

Following their 3-1 win over Mexico’s Under-16 on Wednesday, the future Eagles were confident of a result against the Japanese.

Rather, they got a lesson in marksmanship and staying power by the Japanese.

Shinnosuke Katsushima, who would eventually annex the match ball with a hat-trick, opened the floodgates in the 16th minute.

But Adeyeye Damilola equalised for Nigeria 10 minutes later.

Suwama Kosei made it 4-1 with seven minutes to go.

Eagles will take on the Under-16 team of Romania on Sunday at the last venue, in their last game of the tournament.(NAN)
