Flying Eagles Forward Ibrahim Muhammad Beji produced an outstanding performance for Nigeria on Wednesday night as he scored one of the goals for the Ladan Bosso-led boys in their 4-0 trashing of Ligue 1 club side Olympic Niamey.

Having been named in the final 28-man list for the competition which begins this Friday, the Maikunkele FC striker showed his scoring prowess in the encounter as he rounded up scoring for the Flying Eagles who head into the competition is undefeated in their friendlies.

The goal further shows the strength of the attacker who had been one of the stand-out players for the Flying Eagles from their camping in Nigeria until their departure to Niger for the tournament proper.

Brought it into the squad after impressing for his Club in the NLO, Beji showed why he deserved to be in the final team with an eye-catching performance in the friendly games played in Abuja before the handlers handed him a chance to represent the country proper.

The attacker has however not slowed down with his performance as his latest goal only just proves that the handlers were right to have handed him a place in the final 28-man squad.

It is reported that Head Coach Bosso sees the player as a game-changer and would use him to unlock opponents’ defense as he bids to better his performance at the tournament following his first round exit two years ago.

The Flying Eagles are in Group B alongside defending Champions Ghana and Burkina Faso and would open their campaign against the Black Satellites on Sunday.
