Flying Eagles crush Highlanders 10-0

Nigeria Amateur side, Highlanders FC were the latest team to suffer defeat to the Manu Garba led Flying Eagles, losing 10-0 in a friendly game on Friday.

However, Highlanders had the first attempt on goal through the impressive 14-year-old Ahmed Babayaro who left goalkepper Dele Alampasu sprawling on the floor with a piece of sublime skill only to see his effort skim off the bar.

The chance wasted sprung the Flying Eagles to life and Samuel Mathias was first to a well delivered ball across the box from Musa Mohammed to put them one goal up.

Left-back Mustapha Abdullahi doubled the Flying Eagles lead from what looked like an offside position before Musa Mohammed bent in a spectacular free-kick for the Flying Eagles’ third goal.

Saddam Auta as customary this days scored his side fourth after a through pass from Alfa Abdullahi to keep scores at 4-0 going into the half time break.

Samuel Matthias scored his second and his side’s fifth minutes after the resumption of the second half before substitute Israel Emmanuel added a brace.

Alfa Abdullahi missed a penalty that would have extended the scoreline for his team, but that was after Highlanders missed a penalty as well.

There was no stopping Akinjide Idowu from the spot before Jacob Njoku rounded up scoring for his team to end the game at 10 goals to nothing.
