Golden Eaglets Lose 2-1 To Gabon

Golden Eaglets Lose 2-1 To Gabon

Nigeria’s Golden Eaglets lost 2-1 to Gabon on Sunday evening in a final qualifier for the 2015 African Junior Championship.

The match was delayed by a day after the Nigerians were held back in Lome, Togo, on the orders of Gabonese authorities due to fears over the Ebola virus.

Victor Osimhen opened scoring for the Eaglets, before the home team drew level before the interval.

Gabon then grabbed the winner in the second half.

The return leg is slated for Nigeria in a fortnight with the overall winners of this match-up marching on to the Junior Championship in Niger Republic in February 2015.

Nigeria are the defending FIFA U17 World Cup champions.

    No problem, they have finished their own with all their antics. Nigeria will spell G-A-B-O-N by fortnight.
