Abuja - There is indeed truism in the assertion that 'everyone loves a winner' as the triumphant Golden Eaglets were treated to a standing ovation aboard Emirates Airlines on their return trip to Nigeria after Chile 2015 conquest.

Travelling on Boeing 777 Flight 248 from Santiago to Dubai, the pilot after the usual protocol over public announcement system added matter-of- factly: "We are happy to have on board members of the Nigerian U-17 National Team that was just crowned as the world champions after they beat Mali 2-0 in the final on Sunday."

The announcement was followed with loud clapping and screaming by almost 300 passengers of different nationalities aboard the big bird piloted by the duo of Captain Luciano and Captain Asredew, with two co-pilots Flying Officers Oliver and Arif.

"It is a great feeling to be world champions," noted Funsho Bamgboye who scored Golden Eaglets second goal in the 2-0 defeat of Mali in the Final Match on Sunday in Vina Del Mar. "I'm happy that I have represented my country, state and family well and we can see that this has made a lot of people happy too."

Meanwhile, the Golden Eaglets arrived at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja on Wednesday afternoon.
