Nigeria U17 4 South Korea U17 2 : Olusegun Bags Brace; No Debut For Ebiowei, Jinadu
Five-time world champions at U17 level, Nigeria returned to winning ways in their penultimate friendly ahead of the World Cup by thrashing South Korea 4-2 on Wednesday evening, allnigeriasoccer.com reports.

The Manu Garba-led team lost 2-1 to Sao Paulo youth team in their first friendly on Brazilian soil on October 14.

West Ham goalkeeper Daniel Jinadu and Arsenal's Hale End Academy product Malcolm Ebiowei were not involved against the Koreans and they were joined on the bench by Bournemouth's Joseph Oluwabusola, who tasted action against the South American club.

Divine Nwachukwu gave Nigeria the lead with a header in the sixth minute and an equaliser came for South Korea through a penalty converted by Oh Jaehyeok at minute ten.

Choi Minseo put Korea ahead in the 41st minute but the lead lasted one minute before Olakunle Olusegun restored parity.

Olusegun scored again in the 86th minute and Charles Etim's curling shot from outside the box sailed into the net to make it goal number four in added minutes.
