The Nigerian U20 male national team came back from a goal down to beat Congo 2-1 in a friendly match ahead of the U20 AFCON tournament in Egypt.
It was the first of the two friendly games the Flying Eagles will play in Morocco before departing for the tournament in Egypt.
Onianhue Salomon put Congo in front against the run of play, but Ladan Bosso boys kept surging forward.
Substitute Emmanuel Uchegbu equalised for the Flying Eagles on 66th minute with a brilliant solo effort.
Another substitute Adams Olamilekan netted the winning goal 16 minutes from time after a delightful cross from Emmanuel Njoku.
It was an inspired substitution for Ladan Bosso, who will now lead his team to face Central African Republic on Wednesday.
The team will depart Morocco for the U-20 AFCON on Friday.
The Flying Eagles will face hosts Egypt, Mozambique and Senegal in Group A at the AFCON.
