Beach Soccer W’Cup: Whipping boys Nigeria face Brazil

Nigeria will on Tuesday (today) play against Brazil in their last Group D match at the ongoing FIFA Beach World Cup in Paraguay.

The Super Sand Eagles were on Sunday beaten 6-5 by Oman in their second match after a humiliating 10-1 defeat to Portugal in their opener.

Brazil, who currently top Group D table with six points, defeated Portugal 9-7 and thrashed Oman 8-2.

Oman collected their second-ever win in the history of the tournament at the expense of Nigeria, who are now eliminated.

The Arabs share three points with Portugal, who have a 17-goal difference.

During the Sunday encounter, Oman jumped into a two-goal lead, thanks to Eid Al Farsi’s left-footed, curling rocket into the far corner from distance and Jalal Al Sinani’s impressive scissor kick.

Emeka Ogbonna responded to the early letdown by scoring two goals and bringing the Eagles level early in the second period.

However, Oman just had too much for Nigeria as goals from Mushel Al Araimi, Al Farsi and Sami Al Bulushi had them 5-2 up at the end of the second period.

Ogbonna added another to complete his hat-trick before Adams Taiwo scored with a low drive into the bottom corner to bring the Eagles back to within one.

Oman captain Khalid Al Oraimi scored once again to build a two-goal cushion before Godspower Igudia finished off a well-worked team move to score for Nigeria.
