Williams scored his second of the tournament having grabbed a goal when Nigeria defeated Ghana 4-2 in the first game of the group.

Light Eke, one of the tournament’s finest players came on in the second half to delight Nigerians as he scored a third for the Eaglets. His goal came after Togo had halved the deficit with a cleanly-struck free kick.
