The stage is set for the 2021 CAF U-17 Nations Cup in Morocco, where 12 countries will fight to determine the best U-17 football-playing nation in Africa.
The competition, which kicks off March 13 and ends on March 31, is attracting much attention because of the quality of youngsters that participated in their various Zonal championships.
This is the championship that threw up the likes of Victor Osimhen, Wilfred Ndidi, Kelechi Iheanacho and most of the current big names in Nigerian football. It is also a competition that attracts a large number of scouts who will be looking out for the next big star.
Nigeria is among the 12 countries taking part in this year’s championship.
Coach Fatai Amao’s ability to get the best out of them will be crucial if Nigeria must succeed in the competition.
Placed in Group B alongside Algeria, Tanzania and Congo, the Golden Eaglets have been tipped to come out of the pool unscathed.
Meanwhile, the Golden Eaglets will jet out to Morocco next week.
