Elegbeleye: Eaglets are future Eagles

Director General of the National Sports Commission, Honourable Gbenga Elegbeleye has heaped praises on the Golden Eaglets for zooming into the quarter-finals of the ongoing FIFA U- 17 World Cup in the United Arab Emirates.

The DG of the NSC is however thrilled with the players’ football artistry, composure, determination, confidence and dexterity in match situations. He observed that the players with their performances so far reminded him of the Super Eagles 1994 Class and wants Nigerians to continue to support and pray for them until the team finally wins the competition.

“I am particularly happy with the way the boys have been dazzling people all over the world with their football artistry and capping it up with classy goals in the matches they have played so far.

They have made their victories in matches a delight to watch and they have been improving with the number of games they have played so far. So I say kudos to the team and their coaches led by Manu Garba.

“What thrilled me most is the fact that one can name at least five players that are future Super Eagles materials which is the main reason FIFA introduced this competition in the first instance.

The National Sports Commission is happy with the boys and their technical crew and we are very hopeful that they will bring the Cup back to Nigeria at the end of the competition.

The Nigerian Government has always been rewarding athletes and football teams that have done the country proud. So we are confident that the Golden Eaglets team will emerge Champions of the world and will come back to rewards”, Elegbeleye assured.
