U17 World Cup: Olawale Rues Wasted Chances after Eaglets suffers First Defeat


Forward Peter Olawale says he feels disappointed despite scoring his first goal in the FIFA U17 World Cup, as Nigeria lost 2-1 to Australia.

Olawale scored (21′) either side of Noah Botic’s brace, but the Forward told www.brila.net they were wasteful in front of goal and should have got more.


“Right now, am not really happy because of the result; as a striker, I created a lot chances but we could not make use of the chances created,” the young Forward said.


“Hopefully in the next game, we would be able to progress. Work on our chances, play better and bring happiness back to Nigerians; no one is happy as I speak.”
