Nigeria U-17 Boys’ National team stepped up preparations for WAFU B U-17 tourney by defeating high-flying Tripple 44 FC 3-1 at Old Parade Ground, Abuja on Thursday.
High-flying Tripple 44 team who are preparing for a European tour of Germany and Sweden have been on a run of 30 games without a defeat before facing the Eaglets, who sent their record tumbling.
In a keenly-contested battle, the Nigerian cadet team showed grit, flair and solidity to stop their opponents from extending their unbeaten run to 31. The technical crew started with tested players and also went on to introduce competing substitutes from the bench.
The Ibadan based team recently involved in successful transfer of Olawale Peter, part of 2019 set of Golden Eaglets who played at the U17 World Cup in Brazil. And Emmanuel Adeyemo who currently plies his trade with the Portuguese outfit FC Vizela. He was scouted in 2019 after watching him in just 20 minutes and was offered a 4-year contract. These are just few among other transfer of players to Europe. And the management believe that their trip to Europe will not only expose the players but also help secure contract with European clubs. Tripple 44 is a platform for young talented Nigeria footballers to attain their career dreams.
