Nigeria’s Flying Eagles midfielder, Tom Dele-Bashiru has expressed his joy over his first goal in his International Debut in the colours of Nigeria.
The Manchester City prodigy was one of the players that inspired the Flying Eagles to a comprehensive 4-0 win against Qatar in their opening game at the 2019 FIFA U20 World Cup.
Midway through the second half, the Nigeria U20s scored their third goal through Dele-Bashiru, who slotted home a brilliant effort to cap off a scintillating showing in the middle of the park for his side.
Born in Manchester, the attacking midfielder became provisionally cap-tied to Nigeria following his maiden appearance for the West African giants on Friday evening.
”I scored my first goal for Nigeria in my very first game for the team. I’m over the moon. We gave it our all today,” Dele-Bashiru told fifa.com.
”We’re a strong side and have got a lot of technically gifted players. I think we can go a long way at this tournament.”
Dele-Bashiru represented England at U16 level before committing his international future to Nigeria.
