Nigeria reach WYC final: beating Morocco 3-0


Nigeria's Flying Eagles have qualified for the final of the World Youth Championships in Holland, beating Morocco 3-0 in Kerkrade.

Nigeria's Flying Eagles have qualified for the final of the World Youth Championships in Holland, beating Morocco 3-0 in Kerkrade.

Olympique Marseille defender Taye Taiwo scored the opening goal in the 34th minute, with Olubayo Adefemi and Chinedu Ogbuke consolidating the lead in the 70th and 75th minutes.

Taiwo latched onto a pass from Adefemi and unleashed a 25-metre drive that beat Moroccan keeper Mohammed Bourkadi.

Adefemi's subsequent strike came off a corner taken by John Mikel Obi.

With Morocco's defense in disarray, Isaac Promise ran through their central defence and hit a fierce shot, which was deflected by Bourkadi into the path of Ogbuke, who headed in the third.

Nigeria, who last reached the final of the World Youth Championship in 1989, will face Argentina in Saturday's title decider in Utrecht.
