Nigeria U19s trounced J1 Academy of Abuja 4-1 in a test game ahead of an invitational tournament in Korea.

The scoreline ought to have been heavier, but for poor finishing by the team led by coach Manu Garba.

Nnamdi Kanu grabbed a brace for the team made up mostly of the Golden Eaglets Class of 2016 who failed to qualify for next year's U17 AFCON in Madagascar.

The team are due to fly out to Korea on Monday and will play their opening game against England on Wednesday.

They will also face the hosts team and Iran.
