The Dream Team VI walloped Utaka Academy at the mainbowl of the National Stadium Abuja 6-0 on Wednesday evening.

The encounter which was the last practice game before the start of the Super six and trip to Tunisia saw the Dream Team getting the first goal in the fifth minute through enterprising Plateau United starlet Godwin Saviour.

After the early goal it was the Dream Team all the way as midfield maestro Azubuike Okechukwu held his own making life difficult for the boys from Minna.

Despite the advantage the Samson Siasia led team still showed traces of panic and anxiety, but in the 38th minute Shooting Stars striker Ajayi Junior scored the second goal of the day.

Saviour, who played a pivotal role in Golden Eaglets' success in the 2013 FIFA U17 World Cup, netted his second of the day in the 40th minute to end the first half three-nil in favour of the U23 national side.

On resumption of the second half the Dream Team continued from where they stopped as Peter Onyekachi of Enyimba International scored the fourth goal in the 65th minute.

A minute later Bayelsa United's Tonbara Tiongoli made his presence felt with the fifth goal off a beautiful solo run.

The icing on the cake was Onyekachi's second goal of the day in the 71st minute to end the scoreline at 6-0.
