Golden Eaglets Trounce Chile 5-1

The Golden Eaglets won their second match of the ongoing U-17 Chamionship. Having beaten the United States 2-0 in their opening fixture, they faced hosts, Chile.

If anyone thought the match would be a close encounter, the Golden Eaglets quickly dispelled such notions when Samuel Chukwuma scored the first goal just 30 seconds after kickoff.

By the turn of the hour mark, the Golden Eaglets held a comfortable 4-0 lead and the game was as good as over. Late into the match, the Chilean skipper, Allende, pulled one back before Osimhen scored in the 86th minute to wrap up the goal fest.

Having secured qualification, the Golden Eaglets will face Croatia in their last group on Friday.
