The Golden Eaglets of Nigeria have begun their campaign for a record sixth title at the 2019 FIFA U-17 World Cup on a winning note.

The five-time champions fought from a goal down to beat Hungary 4-2 in their opening Group B game played at the Olympic Stadium in Goiana.

Hungary looked to be holding on to their 2-1 lead from the first half before Usman Ibrahim drew Nigeria level in the 79th minute.

Oluwatimilehin Adeniyi put the Eaglets in front for the very first time when he nodded home from the far post.

Skipper, Samson Tijani, completed a superb comeback with a wonderfully crafted free-kick five minutes from time.

The Golden Eaglets will face Ecuador on Tuesday, October 29 in the same venue.
