Nigeria’s Golden Eaglets Qualify For AFCON

 The Nigeria u-17 team Friday evening beat Burkina Faso 1-0 to qualify for the final of WAFU zone B tournament.

In so doing, the team also picked a ticket for the Africa Cup of Nations for the u-17 scheduled to hold later this year in Morocco. This is a first major breakthrough for Nigerian football whose teams in international competitions have pile up series of bad results.

Nigeria’s solitary goal was scored in the 77th minute by Michael Emmanuel Papo. The team will play the final match against the winner of Cote d’Ivoire and Niger Republic which will hold later on Friday evening.
