The Flying Eagles  of Nigeria on Tuesday defeated South Africa by 2-1  at the ongoing All Africa Games (AAG)  in the second group A match fixture at the Stade Hassan Moulay.

The Nigeria under 2o team are one match away from clinching the semi finial ticket.

The Paul Aigbon’s led team took an early lead through Collins Sor’s simple finish ad could have earned his double but for poor finishing.

In the second half, the Flying Eagles were made to pay dearly for their profligacy in front of goal as the Amijita leveled parity in the 55th minute thanks to a powerful low shot from Ofentse Mashiane that went straight into the back of the net.

The flying eagles extended their lead in the 76th minute through Abubakar Ahmed’s well-slotted ball to the top corner of the net.

The win means the Flying Eagles have four points in two matches after drawing Burkina Faso 1-1 in the opening fixture last week Friday.

Nigeria’s final group B fixture will be against the host, Morocco on Friday in Rabat. A win or draw will be enough to qualify the team to the semi-final.
