The Eagles have made it to the final twice in the past.

South Korea will face Italy in the semi-final of the competition on Thursday (today) while Uruguay will take on debutants Israel in the other semis.

    Strange headline, ill preparation and treatment by the NFF is making people comment this team even though they haven’t won any trophy.

    Gallant indeed They drop the ball after defeating Argentina and the same Italian team they easily despatch in the group stage are going to be champion.

    Nigerians can be such INGRATES…
    Look at the comments here by folks who’ve probably never done anything for Nigeria themselves. SMH

    CONGRATS to the GALLANT FE…
    Only 1 team is going to win it all, and it’s no disgrace finishing among the Top 8 in the World!

    The MOST IMPORTANT goal is talent-spotting and development…
    This team has proffered several potential SEs – Fredericks, Daga, Ogwuche, Eletu, etc.

    BEST WISHES!
