South Africa 0-0 Nigeria
The Amajitas of South Africa held flying eagles of Nigeria to a goaless draw in both teams second group game of the 2019 Total African Under 20 Championship.
The match played on Tuesday February 5, 2019 lack cutting edge chances from both teams.
Nigeria that needed to win to secure a semi final spot as well as book a place at the FIFA Under 20 World Cup couldn’t secure the much needed result.
Nigeria had the huge gamut of ball possession in the game and still couldn’t get the breakthrough as South African goal keeper Kubheka kept his team throughout the game via saves upon saves.
The possessive football of the flying Eagles didn’t result to a good chance conversion in the final third and the team keep on sending aimless crosses that the Amajitas Goal keeper kept on saving and the South African defense were also resolute in the game.
With this result, it meant that Nigeria will have to avoid defeat in their last game and hope that result in the game between South Africa and Burundi will be favourable or better still have to defeat host Niger Republic in her last match.
