WAFU U-17: Golden Eaglets defeat Togo 3-0, cruise into semi-finals

Nigeria’s Golden Eaglets have qualified for the semi-final of the ongoing WAFU Zone B Under-17 Championship after defeating Togo 3-0 in Accra, Ghana.

The Golden Eaglets were second in group B of the WAFU B U-17 Championship going into their final game of the round.

The game was initially scheduled for Wednesday evening, but was postponed to Thursday morning due to a heavy downpour which got the pitch soaked.

Abdulmuiz Adeleke opened the scoring after an impressive attack, with Abdulmuiz Oladimeji supplying the assist.

The Golden Eaglets after scoring the goal kept on with their pressure to increase their points.

For the Eaglets again, in the 35th minute, Rapha Adams scored the second goal through a header after a cross from Simon Cletus.

In the 57th minute of the match, the Eaglets again scored their third goal through Adeleke.

Adeleke however missed an opportunity of increasing the Eaglets goals to four in the 68th minute after they won a penalty following a handball in Togo’s area.

With the outcome of today’s match, Nigeria’s Golden Eaglets will play in the semi-final of the Championship, where they will meet Ivory Coast who  played a goalless draw against Burkina Faso.

Adams assured Nigerians that they will come out victorious in their encounter with Togo in Accra Ghana. (NAN)
