U-17 AFCON: Golden Eaglets’ MRI results dazzle CAF

Nigeria’s U-17 squad, which has won two AFCON crowns and five world cup trophies, is considered the most successful team on the African continent.

Nigeria’s Golden Eaglets have reportedly impressed the Confederation of African Football (CAF) with the outcome of their Magnetic Resonance Image (MRI) test result, Socccernet.ng understands.

The entrance of the under-17 players to the MRI testing facility at the authorised CAF hospital in Algiers garnered notice, given that the under-20 age group had previously been accused of looking older than their years.

Meanwhile, the lads of Nduka Ugbade seemed to be their age when the CAF medical team finished their check, according to Totorinews.

Earlier, Soccernet.ng reported that the two-time Africa Cup of Nations champions might face disqualification if they fail to pass the test.

The youngsters Nigeria will feature in the AFCON U-17 competition, which begins on Sunday against Zambia, are said to have especially impressed the CAF medical staff, according to a source.

The five FIFA U-17 World Cup champions have been seeded to face Zambia, Morocco, and South Africa in the Group B games of the AFCON 2023 tournament.

However, Ugbade will be looking to lead the Golden Eaglets to a third triumph on the continent when they kick off their games against Zambia on Sunday, April 30.
