Abuja - Taiwo Ogunjobi, the chairman of the Osun Football Agency has advised the Golden Eaglets to remain focused at the ongoing FIFA U-17 World Cup in the United Arab Emirates (UAE).
"They have done well so far and I pray they remain in this form, and even improve on their current form,’’ he told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Thursday in Lagos.
"The Eaglets need to remain focused in this tournament if they must coast steadily to the finals.’’
