In a statement by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Mr. Femi Adesina, the President applauded what he called “the exemplary zeal, determination, commitment, hard work, patriotism and soccer artistry” which the Golden Eaglets displayed throughout the tournament to win the championship for a record fifth time.

The statement read in part, “The President notes with delight that the Golden Eaglets not only won the coveted Under-17 FIFA World Cup, but they are also bringing home highly-valued individual awards such as the Golden Boot won by Victor Osimhen for being the tournament’s highest goal scorer and the Golden Ball, won by the team captain, Kelechi Nwakali for being the best player.
