Nigeria’s Golden Eaglets have won the 2015 U17 World championship. They beat Mali 2-0 at the finals which was played in Chile. The Cup triumph means that the Nigerians have successfully defended the title they won two years ago in the UAE. Congrats to them.
Two second half goals by Victor Osimhen and Funsho Bamgboye were all the Golden Eaglets needed against Mali last night to retain the FIFA Under-17 World Cup in Chile.
The Emmanuel Amuneke tutored lads left no one in doubt of their capacity to retain the trophy the Eaglets class of 2013 won in the United Arabs Emirates. Osimhen with tournament record of ten goals was the show stopper on the Nigerian side as he scored in virtually all the matches played by the Eaglets.
Smooth-playing Eaglets captain Kelechi Nwakali was named the Most Valuable Player of the Tournament, as Osimhen also picked up the Second Best Player award alongside the Top Scorer’s Golden Boot. Mali’s Aly Malle was third best.
