Victor Osimhen snatched a later winner for Nigeria’s Flying Eagles to beat home team Sudan 2-1 yesterday in a 2017 Under-20 AFCON qualifier at the El Merriekh Stadium in Khartoum.Sudan’s Young Falcons held their own for most part of this clash against a Flying Eagles side, who paraded several stars from Nigeria’s FIFA Under-17 World Cup triumph last year including Osimhen, who is bound for German Bundesliga side Wolfsburg.The return leg will be played in Nigeria in a fortnight with the overall winners advancing to the U20 AFCON in Zambia in February.The hosts took the lead through striker Mohamed after 27 minutes against the run of play.However, Nigeria drew level in the 67th minute through Samuel Chukwueze.Four minutes from time, Osimhen rose to the occasion to deal a crushing blow on the Falcons.In stoppage time, the star striker then saw his effort saved at point-blank range.Chukwueze, whose move to Arsenal fell through, had earlier come close to giving the Flying Eagles the winning goal in the 74th minute.Sudan would have doubled their lead in the 56th minute, when Khalid was one-on-one with Flying Eagles goalkeeper Akpan Udoh only for him to fire off target.It was massive miss as Nigeria continued to chase the game before they were eventually rewarded .The Nigerians coped well with the boiling heat in Sudan and could have even gone ahead in the 22ndminute, but midfielder ‘Paul Scholes’ Gavi Thompson failed to beat the Sudan goalkeeper Adam after going clear of the defence.Two minutes later, danger man Victor Osimhen was denied by the outstanding Sudan goalkeeper, before his header in the 26th minute crashed against the crossbar.Defender Ejike Ikwu was booked in the 36th minute for a rough tackle.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram

(AP Photo/Matt Rourke) According to stats, the Arizona Cardinals have the best offense in the NFL.They have gained 280 more yards than the Pittsburgh Steelers, who are second in that category, and trail the Carolina Panthers by just four total points.Arizona can beat you through the air, where they average 296.5 yards per game, as well as on the ground, where they tally 126.4 yards per matchup.Arizona converts on third-down a league-best 47.2 percent of the time, which keeps drives alive. Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires They have at times appeared to be unstoppable, and their offense is a big reason as to why they are 12-2 and a legitimate Super Bowl contender.According to ESPN’s Matt Bowen, in an Insider piece, they are the fourth-scariest offense in the entire NFL behind the Pittsburgh Steelers, New England Patriots and Carolina Panthers.Bruce Arian’s (sic) system in Arizona has the best vertical passing game in the league. This offense will take shots over the top with quarterback Carson Palmer(4,277 yards, 32 TDs), and the Cardinals have a pretty legit group at wide receiver to haul in Palmer’s bombs. With Michael Floyd, John Brown and the lightning speed of rookie J.J. Nelson, the Cards can stretch the field and create quick scoring opportunities. Plus, with the route running of veteran Larry Fitzgerald, Palmer can dissect defenses underneath versus zone coverage.If you want to play man coverage, you better have the personnel to match up to this group. And if you want to sit back in Cover 2 or Cover 3, Palmer can eat up the secondary by targeting soft windows in those zone shells.But for as much as we talk about this passing game in Arizona, Arians isn’t afraid to run the football, control tempo and cater his call sheet to the power schemes. There is a lot of balance to this Cardinals offense. They can pound the rock — rookie David Johnson rushed for 187 and three touchdowns in Week 15 — and take shots over the top. That’s going to create issues for defensive coordinators. Pick the wrong look and it could be six points against Arizona.Indeed, the Cardinals have a variety of weapons and ways in which they can attack a defense, and for the most part, the only thing that has held them back are careless turnovers and random struggles in the red zone. That has not happened often enough to derail them, though, and as long as the team’s key offensive players can remain healthy, there’s little reason to believe they will be slowed much in the postseason. – / 14 Comments Share Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact
