Charles Agada and Mavlon were too strong for a gallant Alex Transfiguration in the Italian Cup, Viareggio.

Teenage striker Charles Agada Adah and his club side Mavlon FC continue to take the prestigious Viareggio youth tournament in Italy by storm following a narrow 2-1 win against Alex Transfiguration.

Pulse Sports Nigeria reports that the Golden Eaglets star was the hero again as he netted the winner to inspire Mavlon to reach the semifinals after beating their compatriots on Friday. 

Agada shines for Mavlon

Adah netted his eighth goal in just five matches as the young Golden Eaglets forward steered Mavlon to a place in the final four of the renowned competition in Italy.

The latest strike means the 17-year-old sensation has found the net in every game so far. He hit global headlines with an incredible hat-trick against Fiorentina in the previous round.

His red-hot form in front of goal has powered Nigeria's Mavlon on a history-making run, as they become the latest Nigerian side to qualify for the Viareggio Cup semi-finals in their debut season.

Adah’s clinical finishing has dazzled scouts and captured attention well beyond Nigeria. With five world-class goals in his three matches, the teenage phenom continues proving himself as an emerging talent to watch.

Following the come-from-behind victory against Alex, Agada and Mavlon will face their sternest test yet when they tackle another Nigerian side, Beyond Limits.

The No Limits side has been free-scoring in the competition, netting 20 goals en route to the last four and will surely prove to be a formidable opposition for Adah and his club in the semis.
