Golden Eaglets Defeat Mexico, To Play World Cup U-17 Final Against Mali

Nigerian Golden Eaglets continued their impressive run at the ongoing FIFA U-17 World Cup as they defeated Mexico 4-2 to advance to the final of the Championship. The Mexican team got the first goal of the game 7 minutes into the game through Magana, before Kelechi Nwakali got the equalizer in the 35th minute.

Young player Orji Okonkwo put the Golden Eaglets in front just before the half time break with a well-taken free-kick as the Eaglets ended the first on a high note.

The Mexicans increased the tempo of the game in the second half and were rewarded when D. Cortes’s shot found the back of the net. Osinachi Ebere restored the Golden Eaglet’s lead before Nigeria’s Victor Osimhen made it 4 with a penalty to take his goal tally to 9 goals in the 2015 U-17 World CUP Championship in Chile.

Nigeria will now face Mali in an all African Final on Sunday.
