Excited Amosun’s wife charges Eaglets to win U-17 World Cup
Wife of the Governor of Ogun State, Mrs. Olufunso Amosun, has charged the Golden Eaglets to repeat the feat of 2013 by retaining the FIFA Under-17 World Cup, which the players are currently defending in Chile.
The governor’s wife said with the Eaglets’ defeat over Brazil, Nigeria is capable of winning the World Cup for the fifth time.
“You need to etch your names in gold. You’ve come a long way and I can tell you that you’re better off than any other teams in this tournament. With two more matches to go, you’re the most favourite to win the cup,” she said.
It would be recalled that Akpan Udoh, one of the players of the UPLIFT Football Team, sponsored on a soccer training trip to the Udinese Football Club in Italy by Mrs. Amosun in 2013, is currently making waves in Chile.
Udoh, who is Nigeria’s number one goalkeeper at the ongoing tournament, was one of the 22 young football players discovered by Mrs. Amosun’s football talent hunt programme in 2013.
