Nigeria retained the FIFA Under-17 World Cup crown as they blew Mali away in a pulsating final encounter. Naijaloaded reports.
The golden eaglets had a big chance to go in front very early on in the first half with a penalty, but Ebere’s effort was saved.
In the second half though, Victor Osimhen was at hand to fire Nigeria to a deserved lead with a stunning strike.
Funsho Bamgboye doubled the eaglets lead momentarily with an equally powerful shot.
Victor Osimhen was subsequently given the highest goal scorer of the tournament award after scoring 10 goals.
Nigeria are the youngest team ever to win the tournament.
