It is pertinent to remember that the trio of Nduka Ugbade, Nwako Kanu and Victor Igbinoba were the first members of the Eaglet of Nigeria’s U-17 team,before it was nicknamed the Golden Eaglets after wining the maiden edition in 1985 and now the Golden Eaglet of Nigeria have qualified for the World Cup holding later in the year in Brazil.
The Manu Garba-tutored boys defeated Angola 1-0 in Tanzania at the ongoing Africa qualifiers.
The only goal was scored in the first half through a penalty.
The Golden Eaglets dominated the game but lost many goal-scoring opportunities in both halves.
When their Angolan counterparts were reduced to 10 men following a red card to the captain, the Golden Eaglets couldn’t capitalize on the advantage.
