Nigeria Presdient Hosts World Champs, Eaglets

Nigeria President, Goodluck Jonathan is scheduled to host the Golden Eaglets who won the 2013 FIFA U-17 World Cup, at the State House in Abuja today, Sunday 10 November.
The Nigerian team made history with a 3-0 win over holders Mexico in the final played at the Mohammad Bin Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi on Friday, 8 November, 2013.
The final was a rematch of the 6-1 win Nigeria inflicted on the Mexicans in Group F play and saw the Golden Eaglets lay hands on the junior world trophy for the fourth time in their history, one better than South American giants Brazil.
The Eaglets, their coaches led by Manu Garba and other officials would be rewarded for their gallant efforts by President Jonathan, who has praised the team for doing Nigeria proud.
