Golden Eaglets eliminated from U-17 AFCON, to miss World Cup


Nigeria lost 2-1 to Burkina Faso in the quarter-final of this year’s U-17 Africa Cup of Nations.

The Junior Stallions went two goals up, thanks to a brace from Aboubacar Camara.

Abubakar Abdullahi pulled one back for the Golden Eaglets midway through the second half, but it ended up being a mere consolation.

This result means Nigeria will not represent the continent at the U-17 World Cup later this year.

However, the Burkina Babes will be one of the four teams to fly Africa’s flag.

The other teams are Senegal, Mali and Morocco.
