Golden Eaglets Return After AYC In Niger

The Golden Eaglets are back in the country after taking part in the 11th African U-17 Championship in Niger Republic, where the team finished fourth.

The contingent flew into the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja at 2.10am on Monday, with a ticket to represent Nigeria at the FIFA U-17 World Cup finals in Chile, 17 October – 8 November, 2015.

Head Coach Emmanuel Amuneke has already spoken about the imperative of retooling the squad ahead of the global championship where Nigeria will be aiming to defend the title she won in the United Arab Emirates at a tournament that took place within exactly the same period in 2013.

Nigeria finished in fourth place in the AYC after losing against Guinea 3-1, same team they drew 1-1 in the group stages.

Mali became the African champions following their 2-0 defeat of South Africa.
