Nigeria has won the U-17 World Cup in South Korea. the Eaglets beat Spain on penalties by 3 goals to nil after goalless draw which ran into the extra-time. Nigerian goal keeper, Ajiboye saved two of the three penalties to become hero of the match and possibly the tournament. Nigerian striker, Chrisantus Macauley won the golden boot for being the highest goalscorer with seven goals. Yemi Tella, the Eaglets coach, is undoubtedly the happiest man in the world right now. Nigeria has won it thrice while Spain has lost it thrice.

The Eaglets beat France 2-1, Japan 3-0 and Haiti 4-1 during the group stages. They defeated Columbia 2-1 in the round of 16. It was a sweet revenge when they beat Argentina by 2-0 in the quarter final, and Germany 3-1 in the semi-final.

This is simply wonderful. I hope Nigerian politicians will one day make us proud like this boys. Let them stop stealing our money. Let them provide basic amenities like good roads, constant electricity, drinkable water, welfare system and security.
love Nigeria.
