The Flying Eagles of Nigeria on Tuesday concluded their preparation for the 2023 U20 FIFA World Cup with a hard-fought 3-3 draw against Colombia at October 20 Stadium in Tristan Suarez, Argentina.
The Ladan Bosso-led team entered the test game off the back of their hard-earned 3-2 win over the Argentine second-division outfit, Club Almirante Brown in their previous warm-up game, and they were looking for another victory over Colombia on Tuesday night to end their pre World Cup training camp on a remarkable note.
The Nigerian lads had a shaky start to the game as Abel Ogwuche gave the South Americans an early lead before Jude Sunday got the Flying Eagles back on level. However, Columbia started the second half of the fascinating game on a more convincing note as they registered two quick goals to have a strong lead. However, the Nigerian U20 grew stronger in the closing stages of the game as Mohammed Beji and Emmanuel Umeh scored a goal each to tie the game.
