YSFON congratulates Golden Eaglets
By; AYO OJEDOKUN, Lagos.
 
The Youth Sports Federation of Nigeria (YSFON) has congratulated the victorious Golden Eaglets for winning the just concluded FIFA U-17 World Cup back to back in Chile.
The Eaglets last Sunday defeated their counterparts from Mali 2-0 to lift the trophy for a record five times.
 
In a statement by the President, Dr. YUSUF Gawuna, the Federation noted that the victory is an indication that with proper and adequate planning, Nigeria can dominate the world in Sports particularly in football and at the senior level.
 
According to Gawuna, YSFON is particularly happy that most past and present members of the squad are its products even as it pledged its continuous support to the development of grassroots sports in the country.
 
Earlier Gawuna congratulated President Mohammadu Buhari for the victory saying the fact that Nigeria first lifted the trophy in 1985 when he was Military Head of State, and wining it again as a civilian President is a sign of good things to happen to sports under this present administration.
