“The coach was not happy with the result and he told us we did not play according to instructions,” disclosed Bright Onyedikachi, who scored one of the goals for the Eagles in the first training game on Tuesday.

“We still can’t understand what happened to us, it was like a dream.”

U23 defender Erhun Obanor said it is now all-square between the two teams.

“They beat us on Tuesday and we won on Wednesday. It’s 50-50 now,” said the big defender.

“We will have a final replay on Thursday before we leave to play for our various league clubs,” said Eagles defender Chibuzor Okonkwo.

The home-based Eagles are building up for AFCON qualifiers against Egypt, while the Olympic team will face Brazil in a friendly, all to be played later this month.
