Nigeria’s under 20 side suffers defeat in the hands of their South Korean counterparts by a lone goal, which now means they’ve lost out on a chance to face Italy again who had beaten Colombia to book their place in the semi-final stage.
The South Korean side got their one goal lead early into the first half of the extra time when Seok-Hyun Choi flicked in a header from a corner kick at the Unico Madre de Ciudades Stadium, Argentina. on Sunday, June 4, 2023.
Nigeria’s Flying Eagles who were runners-up twice in 1989 and 2005 could not convert their chances as they met a rather resilient Korean side.
Ladan Bosso’s flying Eagles who were the only Africa’s hope going into their quarter-final encounter against South Korea after Africa’s defending champion Senegal, Gambia and Tunisia had all failed to secure their qualifications, looked really focused and confident in possession but just couldn’t break through the solid defense of a very delighted Kim Eun-jung’s South Korea’s side.
