The U17 Golden Eaglets won the WAFU Zone B championship today by defeating familiar foe, Ghana. The black starts took the lead midway into the second half and shore up their defence.
After series of bombardments from the eaglets, they were finally able to break the resolute Ghanian defence in the 80th minute. With the scores leveled 1-1 at normal time, the encounter was taken to penalty kicks and the Eaglets emerged victorious.
As such, the Golden Eaglets who would now represent Zone B at the U17 African nations cup in Tanzania have been celeberated on social media since their heroic showing by Nigerians.
What Nigerians are saying:
We win together #SoarGoldenEaglets
