Nigeria U19s led by Manu Garba lost their third and final match at the Suwon Invitational Tournament in South Korea today.

They were battered 8-1 by England in their opening game, before they lost 1-0 to Iran, meaning they scored only a goal and let in a staggering 12 goals.

They finished rock bottom of the competition.

They have complained about the freezing weather conditions as well as the huge time difference of eight hours ahead of Nigeria.

On Saturday, hosts Korea led 1-0 by half time, before they scored two more goals after the interval.

The team are due back in Nigeria in the new week.
