Golden Eaglets Storm Togo For WAFU Tourney

The Golden Eaglets of Nigeria who are five-time world champions and three-time world champions Ghana headline the seven-team West African Football Union (WAFU B) U17 Tournament taking place in Lome, Togo 5th  – 20th January 2021.

Nigeria’s U17 Boys, Golden Eaglets will fly into Lome on Sunday morning from Lagos, with a squad of 25 players who are expected to pick the ticket from the WAFU tournament to represent the region in this year’s CAF U17 Cup of Nations taking place in Morocco.

 Pedigree, pride, and career aspiration aside, the Eaglets are sure to derive some kind of vicarious motivation from the below-par outing of the Nigeria U20 Boys at the WAFU B U20 Tournament in Benin Republic last month.

 Nigeria conquered the world in 1985, 1993, 2007, 2013, and 2015, and alongside Ghana have dominated cadet football on the African continent, with Mali, Cote d’Ivoire, and Senegal to be reckoned with as well on the basis of investment and focus on youth development.

 The Eaglets’ first encounter in Lome will be against the Ivorians, at the Stade Municipal on Wednesday from 4 pm, and should serve as a pointer to how much the Eaglets are keen to conquer Africa again.

 On Saturday at the same venue, they clash with Ghana’s Black Starlets in a potentially explosive encounter between two teams with eight world titles between them.

Hosts Togo will open the two-week tournament against the Niger Republic at the Stade Kegue on Tuesday, hours before Group A’s other teams Benin Republic and Burkina Faso clash at the same venue. Nigeria, Ghana and Cote d’Ivoire make up the three-team Group B.

Tottenham goalkeeper Hugo Lloris suffered a gruesome elbow injury as Tottenham went 1-0 down early on against Brighton, MySportDab reports. Lloris was caught out by a long range effort as he dropped the ball at the feet of Neal Maupay for the opener. But he fell awkwardly as he back-pedalled into his own net, with his left arm awkwardly twisting the wrong way as he landed. The French goalkeeper visibly screamed in agony and was given oxygen on the field as he was treated for a substantial period of time and stretchered off. Lloris, Tottenham’s captain, was replaced by Paulo Gazzaniga and give a standing ovation as he was taken from the pitch. According to BT Sport, he was screaming in agony as he was carried through the tunnel and given extra morphine to counter the pain before being taken to hospital via ambulance.
