U-17 WAFU Zone B Tourney: Kanu Charges Golden Eaglets Ahead Final Vs Cote d’Ivoire

Legendary Super Eagles striker Nwankwo Kanu has charged the Golden Eaglets to beat Cote d’Ivoire in the final of the U-17 WAFU Zone B tournament in Togo.

The Eaglets will hope to avenge their group stage defeat to the Ivorians when both teams clash in today’s final.

The Ivorians handed the Eaglets a lifeline after their last group stage win against Ghana sealed qualification into the semi-finals for the Fatai Amoo-led side.

And in the semi-final clash against a high-flying Burkina Faso, the Eaglets triumphed 1-0 and qualified for the final and also this year’s U-17 AFCON in Morocco.

And ahead of the final Kanu, in a video chat with the players, urged them to do everything possible to write their names in the country’s football history book.

“I want to tell the whole team listening to me now, I wish you all the best,” Kanu said.

“This is a dream that all of you have to represent Nigeria and the dream is coming through.

“Go in there and work for each other, the team you will play against you can beat them and by God’s grace you will beat them. 

“Believe that you are going to win and let your names be in the history book that in 2021 you people won it.

“Everybody in Nigeria are proud of you people and believe in you.”
