An Emmanuel Banda own goal and Itamar Shviro's late strike, though, consigned Daka and his international colleagues to defeat. It was a similarly disappointing night for Ndidi and Nigeria too, as the Super Eagles fell to a 4-0 loss to Portugal at José Alvalade Stadium in Lisbon.

A first-half brace from Manchester United midfielder Bruno Fernandes got the UEFA EURO 2016 winners up and running, while Gonçalo Ramos and João Mário also found the net later on. Youngster Reece Evans, meanwhile, was a 58th-minute substitute as Northern Ireland U18 lost 2-0 to Austria U18s.
