Nigeria have been eliminated from the ongoing FIFA U-20 World Cup in Poland.

The Flying Eagles lost 2-1 to fellow Africans Senegal in a Round of 16 fixture played on Monday night.

Paul Aigbogun’s men went into the break two goals down, after Amadou Sagna and Ibrahima Niane struck for the Young Terranga Lions.

Aniekeme Okon pulled one back for Nigeria five minutes after the break, but they failed to find the back of the net again.

Senegal will now face the winner between Japan and South Korea in the quarter-final.
