Golden Eaglets set for Congo invasion

07 July 2014, 19:30Israel Ojoko

Abuja - The U-17 National Team, Golden Eaglets, returned to the country on Monday from a two-match friendly tour of Egypt and will fly to ‘home base,’ Calabar on Tuesday morning.

Emmanuel Amuneke’s wards drew 0-0 with their Egyptian counterparts in the first match on Friday before lashing their hosts 4-2 on Sunday to hit much –needed winning mentality ahead of their 2015 African U-17 Championship qualifying fixture against the U-17 National Team of Democratic Republic of Congo.

“We are making all the necessary arrangements for the Eaglets to go to Kinshasa and do the nation proud, and make the return leg in Nigeria a ceremonial affair,” stated NFF Acting General Secretary, Lawrence Katken.

Nigeria begin her quest for a successful defence of the FIFA U-17 World Cup title with an away game in Kinshasa against the DR Congo starlets on Sunday, July 20. The return leg will hold in Nigeria two weeks after.

The Confederation of African Football has set next year’s continental finals for Niger Republic in the month of May, with the FIFA U-17 World Cup taking place in Chile between October 17 and November 8, 2015.
