Former Golden Eaglets and Super Eagles star Nwankwo Kanu has congratulated the Nigerian U-17 team for their 4-2 victory over Mexico early Friday morning which ensures they will play against Mali in the final of the FIFA U-17 World Cup on Sunday.
Kanu in 1993 was a key member of the Golden Eaglets that won the FIFA U-17 World Cup in Japan with Fanny Amun as coach of the team.
"Thank you all for your support and congratulations to our Golden Eaglets. Congrats Amuneke and your coaching crew. Up Nigeria," Kanu who starred at Japan 93 tweeted.
Mali defeated Belgium in the other semi-final to set up Sunday's all-African final.
