Nigeria Qualifies For FIFA U-17 World Cup Despite Loss To Australia.

Nigeria’s golden eaglets lost to Australia 2-1 in a dead rubber third group b match at the ongoing FIFA under 17 world cup at the Estadio Bezerra in Brazil.

A goal by Peter Olawale was not enough to overturn the brace from Australia's Noah Botic, which ensured the first-ever win for the Aussies over Nigeria at the FIFA under17 world cup, after six attempts.

The golden eaglets failed to pull a comeback, unlike the other two group fixtures which they recorded victories, but secured six points from a possible nine, and finished top of the group.

Nigeria will play their round of 16 matches on the 5th of November, 2019.
