Golden Eaglets midfielder Chukwudi Agor has described his goal and indeed
the opening goal in Group A at the Chile 2015 FIFA U-17 World Cup against the USA, as very important for his budding career.
It was Agor’s second goal for the national U-17 side after he grabbed the winner in the 2-1 win over Brazil at the Suwon U-17 Tournament in September.
“I’m happy that I scored today,” said Agor, which means ‘gift from God’ in Igbo. “I’m dedicating the goal to my sister, Oluchi.”
Victor Osimhen, the Eaglets’ top scorer in the run-up to the World Cup, scored the other goal to give the Nigerians the perfect start to the defence of the title they won in the United Arab Emirates two years ago.
The Golden Eaglets, in the meantime, hit the road on Sunday for Vina del Mer where they will play host Chile at the 24,000 CapacityEstadio Sausalito on Tuesday at 12 midnight Nigerian time.
