AS Monaco defender Elderson Echiejile has backed the Golden Eaglets to successfully defend their FIFA U-17 World Cup title after they hammered Brazil 3-0 in Sunday’s quarter-final clash at the Sausalito Vina Del Mar stadium.
First-half goals from Victor Osimhen, Kingsley Michael and Udochukwu Anumudu sent Emmanuel Amuneke’s side to the final four to the delight of Echiejile, a former Eaglets star.
Echiejile who starred for Monaco in Sunday’s 1-0 home win over Angers in the French Ligue 1 wrote: “Up Eaglets. Through to the semi finals. Go for it boys, it’s yours #GoodPerformance.”
The Eaglets will face the winners of Monday’s quarter-final clash between Ecuador and Mexico.
