Triumphant Eaglets set to storm Abuja


They went, saw and conquered all their foes at the World Cup in Chile and now they are set for a triumphant return home after rewriting the history books at the FIFA U-17 World Cup, which ended in the wee hours of yesterday at Vina Del Mar.

For the Golden Eaglets, five-time champions of the cadet tournament, this must certainly feel like a special moment as their unprecedented triumph in Chile, which culminated in the 2-0 defeat of Mali in the final at Vina Del Mar, has undoubtedly turned them into the beautiful bride as they make the majestic return to Abuja.

The coach Emmanuel Amuneke-led side, who have continued to court endless praises from Nigerians, flew out of Santiago yesterday to Buenos Aires, from where they will connect a flight to Dubai in the United Arab Emirates.

They will spend tonight in Dubai, before embarking on the triumphant journey to Abuja tomorrow, where an elaborate red carpet will be laid by the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), who see this achievement as a watershed in the history of Nigerian football.

Congratulations to them and to all Nigerians. #NigeriaCelebrate.
