Lagos - The Golden Eaglets duo of striker Kelechi Iheanacho and goalkeeper Dele Alampasu are very excited about their invitation to be a part of the 2013 Ballon d'Or in Zurich.
FIFA's news was announced to the team on their bus ride to Abuja from Minna where they were hosted to a dinner banquet by Governor of Niger State, Mu'azu Babangida Aliyu.
"I consider this a blessing from God and a privilege to be invited by FIFA to witness the presentation of the awards to the best players,” said Iheanacho in a release.
Equally elated was Alampasu who won the Golden Glove award.
"I'm so happy about the invitation from FIFA and I have to thank God for this recognition."
Nigeria defeated Mexico 3-0 in the final to win the 2013 U17 World Cup in the United Arab Emirates.
