Golden Eaglets

TVCE (SOCCER) –  31 years after their heroics in China, the Nigerian team that won the first ever FIFA U-17 World Cup will now be rewarded by the country’s President Muhammadu Buhari.

In 1985, Buhari was the military head of state when Nigeria made history by becoming the winners of the first U-16 World championship in China.

The Nduka Ugbade led squad beat Germany 2-0 in the final to become the first African team to win a FIFA tournament.
