Defending champions, Flying Eagles, on Saturday crashed out of the CAF U-20 Nations Cup following the team’s 3-4 loss to Sudan at the Teslim Balogun Stadium, Lagos.

The Nigerians that raised hope of qualifying for the tournament after winning the first leg 2-1 in Khartoum crashed out of the tournament on away goals rule, after both legs ended 5-5.

Having scored two goals away and Sudan scored four away, the Nigerians kicked the tournament bye on away goals rule.
