FIFA U-17 World Cup champions, the Golden Eaglets, will depart for a training camp in Argentina today ahead of the World Cup in Chile, officials have informed. Nigeria won a record fourth title in United Arab Emirates in 2013.


The Eaglets only recently returned from an invitational tournament in South Korea, where they placed third behind winners Brazil and runners-up Croatia.

Incidentally, they will battle Croatia at the World Cup in Chile after they lost to the same team 3-2 at the invitational tourney.

The Eaglets will open their title defence against USA next month.
