U17 AFCON: Golden Eaglets Handed Tricky Nations Cup Group


Nigeria has been handed a rather tricky group to navigate at the Africa U17 Cup of Nations tournament.

The AFCON will also serve as qualifiers for the FIFA U17 World Cup in Peru this year.

Housed in group B, Nigeria will play against Morocco, South Africa and Zambia.

With the team needing to reach at least the semi-finals of the tournament in order to pick up a ticket to the World Cup finals.

The Nigerian team would want to maintain their status as the most successful under-17 country at the tournament.

Tutored by Nduka Ugbade, who himself won the world cup as a player for Nigeria, the Golden Eaglets are won the WAFU Zone B tournament last year.
