    Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso – (African Boulevard News) – Nigeria’s Golden Eaglets defender, Emmanuel Michael, is determined to secure a spot at the 2023 World Cup in Brazil. The young footballer shared his aspirations ahead of the final match of the Under-17 African Cup of Nations (AFCON) against Burkina Faso.

    The Eaglets, who have won the tournament five times, are set to face the host team in a crucial game that will determine which team will lift the trophy. Michael expressed his team’s objective, stating, “We want to play at the World Cup, and that means we have to win this game.”

    Nigeria has a good track record in the Under-17 AFCON, with their most recent victory in 2015. However, the team failed to qualify for the 2019 edition, hosted by Tanzania. Michael acknowledges the importance of this year’s tournament, saying, “We know that we have to win this game to qualify for the World Cup, and we’re ready for it.”

    With exciting young talents like Michael, Nigeria’s Under-17 team has proven to be a force to reckon with on the continent. The team has scored 10 goals in the tournament so far, conceding only once against Ghana in the semi-finals.

    The Eaglets’ head coach, Fatai Amoo, also expressed confidence in his team, saying, “We don’t fear any team. We respect Burkina Faso, but we’ve come here to win.” Amoo has been instrumental in developing the team’s playing style, which has been a blend of possession football and counter-attacking football.

    The final match promises to be an exciting encounter between two evenly matched teams vying for a spot at the World Cup. Michael and his teammates will be looking to replicate their impressive form against the host nation and emerge as champions.

    In conclusion, the Golden Eaglets are prepared for the challenge that awaits them in Burkina Faso. The team’s determination and resilience have been evident throughout the tournament, and it’s no surprise that they are on the brink of securing a World Cup spot. Fans of Nigerian football will be eagerly anticipating the final on Sunday, hoping to see the Eaglets lift the trophy once again.
