Former Super Eagles captain and former African Footballer of the Year Nwankwo Kanu took to Twitter to congratulate the Golden Eaglets on their quarter-final victory over Brazil at the Chile 2015 FIFA U-17 World Cup.
Emmanuel Amuneke's team defeated Brazil 3-0 on Sunday to reach their seventh semi-finals and Kanu, a winner of the U-17 title in 1993, was a happy man.
"We're champions and champions in making. Up Golden Eaglets and Amuneke. We're proud of you boys," the former Arsenal star tweeted.
The Eaglets will play their next game on Thursday.Unblock the FIFA World Cup with ExpressVPN the #1 Trusted Name in VPN
