Nigeria U-17 Set to Face Mali in the FIFA WC FInal After Defeating Mexico

The Nigeria Under 17  world Cup team won their Semi-Final Match yesterday against Mexico in a thrilling contest with Mexico 4-2 to progress to the final of the FIFA Under-17 World Cup in Chile, where they will meet Mali.

Mexico opened the scoring sheet through Kevin Magana, the Golden Eaglet responded with stunning efforts from Kelechi Nwakali and Orji Okwonkwo which saw the African side ahead of the Mexicans. Diego Cortes’s remarkable solo effort levelled the scoreline once again before Osinachi Ebere and Victor Osimhen’s late record-equalling penalty saw the Golden Eaglets ride smoothly into an all-African final against Mali.
