Ambassador feasts with Golden Eaglets

25 April 2014, 13:24Israel Ojoko

Lome - Nigeria's High Commissioner to Togo, Ambassador Mathew Sunday Adoli has once again described the National Under-17 team as the pride of the nation even as he counselled the new generation contesting for the WAFU B Tournament to follow on the heels of their predecessors.

The Golden Eaglets have won a record four FIFA Under-17 World Cup with the last being the all-conquering class of 2013 who created  records on their way to glory in Abu Dhabi last November.

Speaking at a dinner after the glory-seeking lads in Togo dispatched Mali 2-0 on Wednesday, Ambassador Adoli said the Golden Eaglets have over the years brought joy to the country and as such, he expect nothing but victory at the end of the tournament on Sunday.

"I want you to remember that the Golden Eaglets is a team Nigerians are very proud of and I would want you to follow the same path of success," said Adoli. "Already, I have briefed President Goodluck Jonathan about your performance and conduct here and I want you to do your best to emerge winners of this tournament on Sunday."

Both Coach Emmanuel Amuneke and skipper Kelechi Nwakali responded on behalf of the team, assuring that the team remains focussed on the task ahead.

"We want to thank all Nigerians here in Togo especially the Ambassador for all the support so far and by the grace of God, we would emerge victorious at the end of the tournament," Nwakali stated.
