Golden Eaglets lose to Cote D’Ivoire in WAFU B tourney opener


The Golden Eaglets of Nigeria opened their WAFU B tourney campaign with a 1-0 loss to the Baby Elephants of Cote D’Ivoire in Lome, Togo.

The Fatai Amoo led boys started the match brightly with a series of chances created but were unable to convert the chances.

The Ivorians tested goalkeeper Destiny Emuwahem on many occasions before finally getting one past him in the 75th minute through a Mezian Charles strike.

The Eaglets next challenge is Ghana who they would play on Saturday in a must win match if they are to secure qualification to the next round of the tournament.
