Nigeria’s Flying Eagles, on Saturday thrashed their Mauritanian counterpart 5-0 to qualify for the 2019 U-20 African Cup of Nations.

The Paul Aigbogun’s side held Mauritania to a 1-1 draw a week ago in the first leg match of the fixture in Nouakchott.

Flying Eagles’ Wasiu Alalade put Nigeria in front with a well-taken shot in the 15th minute and, after a flurry of missed chances, the national under-20 male football side doubled their lead.

This was through Nafizi Yahaya in the 33rd minute, who went on to complete his brace with a cool finish after being one-on-one with the visiting goalkeeper in first half added time.

Aniekeme Okon scored the fourth goal in the 67th minute while the fifth goal came in the 90th minute through a penalty kick taken  by Afeez Aremu.
