Nigeria Beat South Korea, Qualify For Second RoundThe Flying Eagles have booked their place in the round of 16 at the Fifa World Cup for players aged below 20 years, thanks to the 1 - 0 victory over South Korea on Thursday in Istanbul.

Consequently, Nigeria acquired 6 points from 3 group matches, just 1 point less than Group B winners Portugal, who thrashed Cuba 5 - 0 in Kayseri.

Early in the game, specifically nine minutes, former Charlton Athletic trialist Olarenwaju Kayode silenced his critics by neeting his first goal of the tournament after the South Korea defense failed to clear Abdul Ajagun's free-kick.

While the Koreans searched for an equalizer, John Obuh's charges relied on counter attacks.

Unfortunately, there were no further goals at the Türk Telekom Arena .

Nigeria will play the second best team in Group F( likely to be Uruguay or Uzbekistan) in Istanbul next Tuesday.
