WAFU U17: Golden Eaglets defeat Ghana to reach African Championship

Nigeria’s Golden Eaglets have qualified for the Africa U17 Cup of Nations following a 3-1 penalty victory over Ghana in Saturday’s final of the WAFU 17.

The Manu Garba-led team recovered from an early setback, conceding to the Black Stallions to force the game to a 1-1 draw after regulation time.

His team’s superior spot-kick mastery came to the fore.

Nigeria will join Morocco, Cameroon, Uganda, Angola, and Tanzania for the final phase scheduled for Tanzania in 2019.

The Eaglets will be aiming to surpass their record five FIFA U17 World Cup titles.
