National Under-17 team, the Golden Eaglets forced host, South Korea to a 1-1 draw at the on-going 2015 Suwon Invitational Tournament.

Lee Sangheon scored the curtain raiser as early as the third minute for the home team, but Funsho Bamgboye, making his debut for Nigeria on the international stage, brought the game into parity in the 26th minute, with a lively volley.

Thereafter, it was a ding-dong affair, as both teams searched for the winner with beautiful style of play.

With the result, Nigeria and Korea are jointly in second position behind Brazil who beat Croatia 2-1 in the tournament’s opening match.

The Eaglets’ second game of the Suwon tournament would be against table leader Brazil, while Croatia will face Korea at the Suwon World Cup stadium.
