Nigeria beat Japan 5-4 in Manaus courtesy of four goals from Oghenekaro Etebo on Friday.

Sadiq Umar scored Nigeria’s first goal after only five minutes.

The Japanese equalised via a penalty three minutes later as Shinzo Koroki put the ball behind the net for his country.

Dream Team VI took the lead again through Etebo from a long ball from Abdullahi Shehu. Japan leveled as Takumi Minamino slipped the ball under goalkeeper Emmanuel Daniel.

Etebo was again on the scorers sheet, with a rebound after a Mikel Obi shot was pushed out by Kushibiki, the Japanese goalkeeper.
