The Flying Eagles are through to the quarterfinals of the FIFA U-20 World Cup after beating Argentina 2-0 to send the tournament hosts out of the championship.

Ibrahim Muhammad opened the scoring for Ladan Bosso’s boys in 61 minutes before Rilwanu Sarki made it 2-0 in the first minute of added time to send the record six-time U-20 world champions packing from the tournament.
Up next for the Flying Eagles is a quarterfinal clash against either Ecuador or South Korea.
