    Yahiiiiii CNN won’t see this to publicize. If it’s bad news we won’t hear any other thing. The western media is so polarized

      You are no Real Nigerian. Not with comments like this about your country

    CONGRATS TO THE GOLDEN EAGLET!!! Una break record oh! All glory to God.

    And I thought Oga Emmanuel Amunike is allergic to smiles, was surprise to see him laughing sef. You did a good job.

    Udoh, Osimhen, Bamgboye, Nwakali, Lazarus(confirm defender noni) and others biko maintain/increase that speed, stamina, love and equality.

    BN its Kelechi Nwakali not Nwakili, no join this oyibo people spoil that boy’s name biko.

    I’m still wondering how and why the Malian GK deserves the Golden Glove instead of our own GK cos that guy(Udoh) is too GOOD.
    I stand to be corrected.

      @A Real Nigerian. .Did you watch the match life?
      Am sorry, your observations are totally different from the game, I watched!
      In fact, the boys from Mali,we’re apparently older than the Nigerians.

    Big congrats to our Boys. They were phenomenal. Big up to Amunike our coach, job well done!!
    Please oh necessary bodies in charge shouldn’t let these boys because they have serious potentials. And hopefully they boys wouldn’t stop improving on themselves.
    Wishing them luck in their future endeavors.

    his is embarrassing and disgraceful. Do these MEN even remotely look like 17-year-olds? Why are Nigerians blatantly ignoring the fact that these so-called “youths” are overaged? Why are we encouraging mediocrity and fraud? What a shame!
    Nigerian footballers are not good enough to thrive at any international level, this is the only means through which they can be glorified – bullying their way through youth tournaments by putting up men against young kids.
    Isn’t it surprising that these youths that shine in these U-17 tournaments are nowhere to be found in a few years? They always end up as forgotten flops and rejects. Why?
    And here we are, seeing the citizens of a diseased nation supporting a disgraceful achievement by underhanded and vile men parading themselves as teenagers.
    The world knows the truth.

    @ A Real Nigerian, give it a rest will yah, u don’t have to congratulate them because no one cares about you and your envious soul, am sure if u had a relative in the team, u will be talking from the other side of your mouth praising the team ( i don’t know any one on the team).

    You should be ashamed of yourself especially after calling yourself a real Nigerian. It only shows you are a real shitty person.

      @A Real Nigerian. .. if these boys I watched life, we’re older that 17 years, then Nigerians are midgets.
      They looked like my 14 year old cousin, born and living in Nigeria.

    Congratulations to the team and Nigeria! For those wondering why CNN isn’t loud with praises for the team and the country, it just shows how powerful the network is thought to be. For those who care less what the network reports or fails to report, it doesn’t change the fact that so many persons will still know. We have the Web, and its power of information can’t be compared to those of so many media networks added together. On a witty note, I think there may be a connection between what the team is called and their accomplishments. Who knows? The Super Eagles may begin to perform better if, of the needed changes that should be made, they are called ‘The Golden Eagles’ for a start. Once more, congratulations to the team and Nigeria!
