Mohammed Sanusi, General Secretary of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), on Sunday expressed confidence in the ability of the Golden Eaglets to beat Burkina Faso tomorrow.

NAN reports that the U-17 West African Football Union (WAFU) B qualifiers gets underway in Niger Republic on Monday.

Sanusi told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) that the Manu Garba-led boys were fit and ready to crush any opponent in West Africa.

He said they were well prepared to rekindle the glory of Nigeria in the U-17 category of global football.

“We should be prayerful because tactically our boys are good to go; therefore, what we need now is just God’s intervention,” the federation scribe said.

Nigeria’s U-17 team would contend with two opponents in their group because of the disqualification of Benin Republic.

Ten out of 20 Benin Republic players failed the Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) test, leading to their disqualification.

However, Nigeria is left with Cote d’ Voire and Burkina Faso in the Group.

The Golden Eaglets will be slugging it out on Monday by 4 p .m. local time with Burkina Faso.

The WAFU qualifiers is for qualification to the U-17 African Cup of Nations (AFCON) to hold in Tanzania which is a qualifying finale for U-17 World Cup tagged Peru 2019. (NAN)
