AFCON U17: Nigeria captain Tijani wins Man of Match against Angola

17 Apr 2019, 19:50

CAF has named captain of Nigeria's Golden Eaglets Samson Tijani as Man of the Match in Wednesday's U17 AFCON Group A clash against Angola.

Nigeria won 1-0 and classy defensive midfielder Tijani was at his best as he brought a better organization to the Eaglets defence, which let in four goals against Tanzania at the weekend.

Olakunle Olusegun earned Nigeria the ticket to the tournament semi finals and to Brazil 2019 when he hooked a 21st minute penalty to the roof of the net with Angola’s goalkeeper Geovani stranded.

Tijani was the MVP of the zonal qualifiers in Niger in September.

Another Golden Eaglets star, Akinkunmi Amoo, was Man of the Match against Tanzania on the opening day of action.
