Nigeria’s Under-23 internationals survived a second half scare to beat Glo Premier League side Warri Wolves 2-1 at the Abuja National Stadium on Saturday.

Augustine Amutu placed the Olympic Team ahead in the 3rd minute but Gift Atiluwa poked the ball beyond goalkeeper Jonah Usman to restore parity four minutes after the hour mark.

Baker Ebiabowei restored the Dream Team VI’s one-goal cushion in the 52nd minute as the Olympic Team- under stand-in coach Fatai Amao- fended off Wolves’ late resurgence to register an opening day win in the 2015 Super 4 pre-season tournament.

The Super 4 is parading Nigeria’s pair of U-20 and U-23 internationals for the first time, ahead of their upcoming African Youth Championship (AYC) and an All-African Games qualifier against Gabon, both later in the year.

Christopher Madaki almost doubled Olympic Team’s lead in the 36th minute but his long range shot missed target by just a glimmer.

Ikechukwu Ibenegbu’s free-kick on 77 minutes came off the woodwork as Wolves sought for a leveler.

Goalkeeper Usman impressed for the U-23 side, venturing a one-handed save to keep out substitute Sikiru Adewale’s strike in the 82nd minute and then blocked Kelvin Itoya’s shot 8 minutes later.
