The Executive board member NFF and chairman of Borno State congratulates the golden Eaglets for winning the sole ticket of U 17 AFCON 2019.
It is a well deserved victory for the boys, I congratulates the boys as well the entire team for putting up a good fight against arch- rival the Black Starlets of Ghana.
I watched the boys in Niger Republic played and i knew they have what it takes to win the tournament haven watched other teams played what they need is focus, and determination to win the tournaments
I am not surprised that they won the WAFU B tournament, they have really shown the right character and the right attitudes required.
For me ,watching those young talented players gave me a flashback memories of my days as a player in 1993 with the likes of Kanu Nwankwo, celestine Babayaro, Festus Odini, Mobil Oparaku , and many others when we played the qualifiers together.
Having played for the country and also captain Borno state academicas and El-kanemi warriors of Borno state and the present chairman of match commissioner appointment commitee
went on to say i urge the boys not to relent on their effort , be calm, cool headed and they should remain focus because there is a promising future ahead of them where they can become greater than the predecessors we have in Nigeria ready.
My prayers for them is that they should become great and discipline to show the world that Nigeria have Bunch of wonderful talents come may in Tanzanian.
