Nigeria’s U-17 team, the Golden Eaglets picked the first out of the four tickets for Africa at the FIFA U-17 World Cup holding in Brazil later this year.
The team defeated Angola 1-0 in Tanzania at the ongoing AFCON U-17 tournament.
The lone goal was scored in the first half through a penalty. The Golden Eaglets dominated the game but lost many scoring chances 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.
Nigeria defeated host Tanzania 5-4 in the opening game of the tournament.
