Nigeria has become the first to book the 2019 FIFA U-17 World Cup ticket, after defeating Angola 1-0 in a match played in Dar es Salaam on Wednesday.
Olakunle Olusegun’s goal through a penalty kick in the 21st minute, made Nigeria the first to book the 2019 FIFA U-17 World Cup ticket to Brazil. Though the Golden Eaglets were guilty of profligacy and the technical crew certainly has much to do still, but they proved to be masters of use of space and close control.
The win gave the Eaglets a return to the FIFA U-17 World Cup, after missing out of the last edition staged in India two years ago. Nigeria will certainly finish at the head of Group A if they avoid defeat against Uganda at the same venue on Saturday.
