The Golden Eaglets were on Wednesday eliminated by their Guinean counterparts from the ongoing Under 17 Africa Cup of Nations in Tanzania.  The Nigerian lads lost 9-10 to their opponents on penalty after the regulation time ended in a goalless draw.

The tension soaked encounter which took place at the National Stadium, Dar es Salaam saw the Junior Sylis of Guinea progress to the final. They will know their opponents later on Thursday after the winner of the second semi-final match between Cameroon and Angola will have emerged.

With the match finishing goal after 90 minutes, no extra time was added and a penalty shoot-out followed, where Ogaga Oduko missed the crucial kick to end the Golden Eaglets’ hope of lifting the trophy.

Our motto is: ‘We stand for the truth, irrespective of who tells it’. Driven by this philosophy, our aim has been to create a platform where every voice, every narrative – provided they are decently expressed –  is allowed expression. Our belief is that by promoting unfettered competition of ideas, the truth will eventually emerge. Obviously, doing this while resisting any temptation to be captured by any special interest or tendency makes survival as an online newspaper more challenging. This is why we will appreciate any support from our readers:
