The Sports Minister, Sunday Dare, hosted the victorious Golden Eaglets team that won the WAFU B U-17 Championship in Abuja on Tuesday.



The Golden Eaglets defeated Burkina Faso 2-1 in the final of the competition last Friday at the Cape Coast Stadium.

Nduka Ugbade’s charges have also secured a ticket to the African U-17 Cup of Nations, which will be hosted by Algeria in 2023.

“I congratulate the players and their coaches of the Golden Eaglets for winning so convincingly in Ghana, and I want to charge you to remain focused for the continental championship in order to get a ticket to the World Cup,” Dare said during the ceremony.
“For you players, you must stay humble, hardworking and obedient to your coaches.”

Dare also commended the Nigeria Football Federation for employing competent coaches to handle the team.

“I want to give credit to the NFF for implementing the cardinal principles that we agreed on at meetings on youth football development." "Now, we can see that the emphasis on merit and competence has started to bear fruit,”he added.
” The U17 and U20 girls have qualified for their FIFA World Cup competitions with aplomb, and the U17 and U20 boys have won regional tournaments in an emphatic manner, with promises of what we can look forward to at their African championships next year.”
