U-20 AFCON: Abel Ogwuche wins Man of the match in Flying Eagles’s 1-0 victory over Uganda

Abel Ogwuche who replaced Flying Eagles captain, Daniel Bamaiyi has been named the man of the match in the Flying Eagles 1-0 win over Uganda on Thursday.

Bamaiyi was suspended following two yellow cards he received in the group stage.

The seven times African champions pipped the Cranes of Uganda in the quarter final of the 2023 CAF U20 African Nations Cup in Ismailia to pick the Semifinal and World Cup tickets.

He produced an impressive performance in the game, providing the necessary blockage in the heart of the defense for the team and disallowed Ugandans from penetrating into the defense.

CAF announced Ogwuche as the winner of the award on their Twitter handle.

“Meet your #UGANGA TotalEnergies Man of the Match: congratulations, Abel Ogwuche! 😍🏅

The Flying Eagles booked a place in the semi-finals of the 2023 U-20 Nations Cup in Egypt thanks to Ibrahim Juma home goal in the 30th minute of the encounter. Senegal had earlier in the first quarter finals qualified for the semis and world Cup.
