The Nigerian Flying Eagles have arrived in Abuja after being eliminated from the ongoing U-20 World Cup in Argentina.
The players and their officials flew into Abuja on Thursday afternoon via Ethiopian Airlines.
The Flying Eagles were eliminated from the competition by South Korea on Sunday night.
The Flying Eagles were unable to beat Korea Republic in the 2023 FIFA U20 World Cup quarterfinals after beating the hosts and favorites, Argentina.
South Korea scored the lone goal in extra time after a 0-0 draw in regulation time to end Nigeria’s hopes of making the semifinals.
As a result of the defeat, the players and officials of the team missed out on the chance to receive a parcel of land in Abuja, which was promised by businessman Aliyu Oroje Wammako if we win the title.
Wammako, who is not only a passionate football fan but also the president of the Real Estate Developers Association of Nigeria, made this commitment during his visit to the players at their base in the Hyatt Park Hotel in Mendoza.
