Christian Pyabara fired a brace as the Flying Eagles came from behind to beat Egypt U-20 team 3-1 in a warm-up game in Cairo on Wednesday.

The match at the Degla Stadium outside Cairo was staged to prepare both teams for next month’s African Youth Championship in Algeria.

The hosts took the lead against the run of play in the 50th minute through a header by Ibrahim El-Sayed El-hadad off a corner.

But the Flying Eagles fought back thereafter and deservedly drew level in the 61st minute when Sharks forward Pyabara finally smash home a rebound after his first attempt came off the post.

Skipper Abduljaleel Ajagun then extended Nigeria’s lead in the 77th minute as he jabbed home from inside the box after yet another flowing team build-up from the right.

Pyabara then made it 3-1 in the 81st minute when he headed home a delightful cross from the left by Kingsley Madu.

Ajagun could have widened the margin eight minutes from time but somehow he missed in front of a begging net.

In the first half, the Flying Eagles were by far the better team and created the better chances but could not put any away.

A fifth minute header by Ikechukwu Okorie off a Pyabara corner missed narrowly and on 15 minutes, Ajagun’s shot appeared to have crossed the goal line when it came off the underside the crossbar but it was not given.

In the 35th minute, the lively Pyabara set up Ajagun, but his final effort missed by a whisker.

Egypt’s best opening in the first half was after seven minutes, when goalkeeper Emmanuel Daniel made a meal of a clearance and Ahmad El-Sayid Ya’afat broke through only for Chizoba Amaefule to clear off the goal line.
