The Golden Eaglets of Nigeria are out of the 2019 FIFA U-17 World Cup in Brazil after losing 3-1 to The Netherlands in the Round of Sixteen.
Sontje Hansen’s hat-trick condemned the West African nation to defeat in their Round of 16 fixture at the Estadio Olimpico Pedro Ludovico.
The Golden Eaglets’ string of unconvincing performances, coupled with their exit from the tournament in Brazil left football enthusiasts to question the tactical prowess of the team’s technical crew.
Manu Garba’s boys lacked co-ordination in the defence and also lacked cutting edge to put the ball into the back of the net.
Their campaign for a sixth world title in Brazil came to an end with a record of nine goals scored, nine goals conceded in four matches.
