Eaglets make it to the knock-out stage.
The President, Goodluck Jonathan, on Friday congratulated the National U17 team, Golden Eaglets, on their 5-0 victory over Iraq at the ongoing U-17 (football) World Cup in Dubai.
The Golden Eaglets have made it to the knock-out stage of the tournament.
Mr. Jonathan urged the team to maintain its resilience, commitment, and dedication, exhibited thus far in the competition, until ultimate victory was achieved.
He advised the Eaglets and their handlers to prepare very well and hone their acknowledged skills and soccer artistry, even further, to overcome all their remaining opponents in the competition, and bring the Under-17 World Cup home to Nigeria.
He assured them of the support of the Federal Government and all Nigerians as they progress in the competition.
