Sand Eagles spank Madagascar 5-3

The National Beach Soccer team, otherwise known as Sand Eagles, defeated their counterparts from the Indian Ocean island of Madagascar 5-3 in their first match of the African Beach Soccer Championship in Casablanca, Morocco.

Veteran Isiaka Olawale scored one of the goals, as Victor Tale and new boy Shehu Maijama’a also got on the score sheet.

But the player of the day was forward Musa Najere, who hit a brace to give Nigeria victory.

The 2007 and 2009 champions thereby took control of the three-team Group B, which also has South Africa.

South Africa will take on Madagascar on Thursday evening while the former will await the fireworks of the Nigerians on Friday evening in Morocco’s commercial and industrial capital.
