Golden Eaglets to participate in Dubai Tourney

President of the of NFF,Amaju Pinnick has confirmed that the Nigeria U17 team, the Golden Eaglets, will feature in an international tournament in Dubai later this year.

The Eaglets had a disappointing outing earlier this month, as they lost 3-2 to Niger Republic in a qualifying match for the 2017 U17 AFCON.

However, Pinnick insisted the NFF will not abandon the team because “they are the youngest ever Golden Eaglets” and that is why they will be kept together.

“They will feature in an international tournament in Dubai later this year,” Pinnick disclosed in an interview on Tuesday.
