Gbenga Daniel urges Eaglets to win U-17 World Cup

The immediate past governor of Ogun State, Otunba Gbenga Daniel has urged the Golden Eaglets to go ahead and win the 2015 U-17 World Cup final on Sunday as a fitting reward for the physical fitness, good fielding skills, discipline and team spirit exhibited by the team.

Daniel congratulated the side on making it through to the last game and hoped the trophy that Nigeria won in 2013 would return to the country back-to-back.

Speaking on the sterling performance of the team since the beginning of the championship, Daniel congratulates the team and the whole nation for Eaglets’ prowess as Nigeria prepares for a fifth-time win.

Said he: “Notwithstanding the fact that the main aim of the championship is to discover young talents and build a strong national team, winning the ultimate trophy is a matter of pride and an icing on the cake”.

He then concluded by praising the Eaglets for “doing us proud and making us forget the Chile ’87 debacle”.
