The 2023 under 17 AFCON dreams of Nigerian Nigeria’s Golden Eaglets was dashed as they crashed out of the ongoing tournament after falling 2-1 to fellow West Africans Burkina Faso in the quarter-finals in Algiers.


The result now means the Golden Eaglets will not be participating in the under 17 World Cup that would take place later this year, with Burkina Faso completing the quartet of teams to represent Africa in the tournament.


The other teams are Senegal, Mali, and Morocco.


The Nigerians have their poor finishing skills and defensive blunders to blame for the result.
