Golden Eaglets to play In South Korea before U17 World Cup

02 June 2015, 20:30

Lagos - Nigeria's U-17 boys football team, the Golden Eaglets, will open their account at the Suwon International invitational Tournament in Korea against their Brazilian counterparts on June 10, it has been revealed.

The Nigeria-Brazil encounter which is the second match of the day, would kick off at 6:00pm local time (10:00 am in Nigeria) while home side, Korea's Junior Tadjeu Warriors would have the honour of kicking off the 4-Nation Invitational against USA at 3:00pm(7:00am in Nigeria).

Two days later, the  Golden Eaglets would then face the Junior Tadjeu Warriors while the Brazilians would face the Americans in the competition that Golden Eaglets coach Emmanuel Amuneke insists will be a good test for his newly recruited players.

"The 4-Nation Invitational is really good for us as it would further expose the players to competitions  against teams that we could meet at the World Cup in Chile," stated the former African Footballer of the Year.
