    Congratulations to Mr. President, the entire Golden Eaglets team and all the Nigerians both home and abroad. Kudos to you coach Amunike. The next question we should be asking our selves now is, wish way forward Nigeria??? After the 2013 under17 world cup, how many of those players have been playing for the Super Eagles? This is the another set of great players in this year 2015 under17, we can form a great Super Eagles team from these two teams 2013 and 2015 under17 but why we can’t wake up and do the right thing? Hmm. God bless Nigeria!
