- ‘Keep It Up’ —NFF Charges Eaglets After Win against Ghana
The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) has charged the Golden Eaglets not to relax after their 4-2 win against hosts Ghana at this year’s WAFU B U-17 tournament.
The coach Nduka Ugbade-led side overcame their Ghanaian counterpart in Group A of the regional qualifiers.
Goals scored by Emmanuel Michael, Precious Williams, Jubril Azeez and Light Ike, secured the win for the Eaglets.
And reacting to the win, the NFF wrote on their Twitter handle: “Great start Eaglets. Massive win against the Black Satellites. Keep it up! Ghana U17 2-4 Nigeria U17. Wafu B Championship.”
The Eaglets will on Tuesday, 14 June take on Togo and will qualify for the semi-finals with at least a draw.
The Group B match will kick off today (Sunday) with Côte d’Ivoire facing Benin Republic while Burkina Faso and Niger Republic trade tackles.
However, the two teams that make the final of the WAFU B tournament will qualify for the 2023 U-17 AFCON in Algeria.
Four teams will emerge as Africa’s representatives from the U-17 AFCON and feature at the 2023 U-17 World Cup in Peru.
