Ladan Bosso tutored Flying Eagles on Monday wobbled to their first victory over lowly rated South Sudan at the Men’s football event of the All African games in Ghana by a penalty goal.

Sadie Isyaku scored from the penalty spot in the 80th minute to give Nigeria fresh air of hope at the games at the Accra Sports Stadium.

Nigeria slumped 1-2 to less fancied Junior Ugandan Cranes in their group opener and when they lifted their heads to see the exit door the goal came.

Earlier today, Uganda pipped Senegal by a lone goal to further open the pages of upset at the games.

Nigeria has to clearly beat Senegal in their last group games to move to the semifinal of the Men’s football event. Uganda will square up against South Sudan who are out already as the team lost 0-1 to Senegal in their first match.

South Sudan had on 3rd March 2023 lost mesmerisingly 0-5 to Gambia U20 boys; played goalless with Uganda on 26th February 2023; defeated CAR by a lone goal on 23rd February 2023 and lost 1-2 to Congo on 20th February 2023.

Nigeria bowed to Uganda 1-2 in the All African games outing but had world cup matches beating Italy 2-0 on 24th May 2023; lost to Brazil 0-2 on 27th February 2023; banged Argentina 2-0 at the world cup on 21st May 2023 before South Korea piped Nigeria 1-0 on 4th June 2023.
