2015 Golden Eaglets Profile

THE PROFILE OF THE CHILE 2015 U-17 WORLD CUP GOLDEN EAGLETS




As the defending Champions of the FIFAU-17 World Cup, the Golden Eaglets arrived in Santiago, the Capital city of Chile where they will take on the USA in the first match, the players are in buoyant mood as Nigeria has a solid record at the U-17 level.

 The Golden Eagles are the defending Champions as they won the U-17 world cup two years ago (a feat masterminded by trio of Yahaya, Iheanacho and Captain Musa Mohammed) and would be making their 10th appearance in the 16th edition of the U-17 World cup tournament.

The Coach have not hidden his intension as he said that they are in Chile to win knowing that Nigeria have never won the U-17 outside Asia.

 Coach Emmanuel Amuneke has named a strong 21-man squad which comprises of three goalkeepers, 4 defenders, 8 midfielders and six strikers. Nigeria are with the youngest squad in the U-17 championship as Orji Okonkwo (17years) is the oldest with Edidiong Essien (15years) the youngest with an average age of 16.42years.

On this note SoccerNet Nigeria takes a complete look at the profile of the current U-17 team led by utility player Kelechi Nwakali.
