4 The News Agency of Nigeria reports that the national under-17 male football team had won the 2022 WAFU B Under-17 Tournament on June 18.

5 They had defeated Burkina Faso 2-1 in the final match of the tournament held in Cape Coast, Ghana.

6 Success in Ghana meant they qualified for the Africa Under-17 Championship in Algeria next year.

7 While receiving the team, Dare told them that the work has only just began.

8  “You must be prepared to work harder than you have done. The bigger ticket is to the World Cup in Peru in 2023.

9 “You have set the standards high and you cannot lower it. It will be good for you to become continental champions in Algeria next year and then prepare to face the bigger hurdle, which is in Peru.

10 “Since your coach, Nduka Ugbade, lifted the FIFA Under-16 World Cup  in 1985, Nigeria have won the FIFA Under-17 World Cup four times —— in 1993, 2007, 2013 and 2015. My hope is that you will do it again for Nigeria.

11 “Let me repeat, that we are proud of you and we will continue to give you the necessary support that you will need. Stay humble, listen to your caches and work hard,” he said.

12 On his part, Ugbade thanked the Minister for the reception and added that he was hopeful that the team would begin training well ahead of time.

13 “This team you see did not have as much training as expected, but we were able to do our best at the WAFU B and won the tournament.

14 “I appeal that we begin the campaign for Algeria early, so that by the time we get to Algeria, Nigerians will see something totally different from what they have witnessed in Ghana,” he added.(
