The Flying Eagles continued their build-up for next month’s 2015 AYC qualifier in Tanzania with an 8-0 thumping of gritty Ikare United of Ondo State on Wednesday in Abuja.

Musa Yahaya and Taiwo Awoniyi produced a brace each with further goals by Alhassan Ibrahim aka Muazam, Sulaiman Abdullahi, Abubakar Lawal and Wasiu Jimoh.

“We will continue to work on the team especially on their tactical discipline,” disclosed assistant coach Nduka Ugbade.

The test match played at the FIFA Goal Project in Abuja was watched by the director general of the National Sports Commission, Gbenga Elegbeleye, as well as the director of competitions of the NFF, Mohammed Sanusi.

The Flying Eagles started on a good note and missed two early chances before Kelechi Iheanacho was fouled inside the box for a penalty in the ninth minute, which Mua-zam failed to convert as the Ikare goalkeeper did well to save it.

Iheanacho was again thwarted by the Ikare goalkeeper two minutes later when he came face-to-face with him.
Mu-azam finally broke the deadlock on 13 minutes when he rifled home a low shot from outside the box to make up for his miss from the penalty spot.
