Future Eagles lose to Japan

Following their 3-1 win over Mexico’s U16 on Wednesday, the Future Eagles were confident of a result against the Japanese.

But they got a lesson in marksmanship and staying power by the Japanese.

Katsushima, who would eventually annex the match ball with a hat-trick, opened the floodgates in the 16th minute. But Adeyeye Damilola equalized for Nigeria 10 minutes later.

Katsushima got his second four minutes after the restart, and then made it three for himself and Japan in the 52nd minute. Suwama Kosei made it 4-1 with seven minutes to go.
