WAFU B U17 Championship: Golden Eaglets See Red Against Niger Republic

Posted : 20 May 2024

The Nigeria U-17 Golden Eaglets on Sunday night defeated Niger Republic 1-0 to emerge as joint leaders of Group B with Burkina Faso at the ongoing WAFU B U-17 Championship at the University of Accra Stadium.


Rapha Adams’ powerful header in the 31st minute was the difference between the two West African neighbors in a match that Nigeria played the final 27 minutes with 10 men after Chibuike Okorie was shown the red card.


Victory means the five-time world champions climbed to four points, the same as Burkina Faso, ahead of the closing day of group B action on Wednesday when the Eaglets confront group whipping boys Togo at the Accra Sports Stadium, while Burkina Faso squares up to three-pointer Niger Republic at the University of Accra Stadium.


A draw against the Togolese team on Wednesday will guarantee the Eaglets a place in the tournament’s semifinals.


Nigeria captain Simon Cletus wins the Player of the Match award, just as he did in the match against Burkina Faso on Day 1.


Group B Results:

Burkina Faso 0 Nigeria 0

Niger Rep 3 Togo 2

Togo 0 Burkina Faso 2

Nigeria 1 Niger Republic 0
