2023 U-17 AFCON: Golden Eaglets Beat South Africa, Clinch Quarter-final Ticket

May 6, 2023 10:35 pm

Nigeria’s Golden Eaglets have booked their place into the quarter-finals of the 2023 U-17 AFCON after defeating South Africa 3-2 in their final Group B game on Saturday.

The Eaglets had to come from behind twice before eventually bagging the winner to go through.

With the victory they finish second on six points while Morocco claimed first place.

Despite the defeat South Africa can still advance into the last eight as one of the third best placed team.

In Group B’s other game Morocco lost 2-1 to Zambia who are bottom.

South Africa took the lead in the sixth minute through Vicky Mkhawana.

In the 33rd minute Charles Agada equalised for the Golden Eaglets but Siyabonga Mabena put South Africa 2-1 ahead on 45 minutes.

Just two minutes into the second half the Eaglets drew level through Light Eke.

And in the 63rd minute Abubakar Abdullahi got what proved to be the winner for the Eaglets.

Nigeria will play the runners up in Group C.

Meanwhile, in Group C, South Sudan was disqualified because many of their players failed the MRI test that is used to verify the ages of players.

CAF disqualifies South Sudan U-17 team over age falsification

The South Sudan Football Association expressed its regret in a statement and acknowledged the decision made by the Confederation of African Football.

By Tunde Eludini April 30, 2023

The South Sudan U-17 national football team has been disqualified from the ongoing 2023 African Cup of Nations (AFCON) U17 tournament in Algeria after five of their players failed the MRI test conducted on the team

The South Sudan Football Association (SSFA) expressed its regret in a statement and acknowledged the decision made by the Confederation of African Football (CAF).

SSFA Spokesperson Albino Kuek Deng revealed the MRI test was conducted on 26 April and was intended to confirm that all players met the age eligibility criteria established by the competition’s regulations.

However, 48 hours after the test was conducted, the SSFA said they received a notification from CAF indicating that five players failed the MRI test and were deemed ineligible for participation in the competition.

It said two of these players had previously passed the MRI eligibility test in Ethiopia during the zonal qualifiers in September 2022.

“We immediately wrote a complaint to CAF medical committee an official complaint against their decision attaching the MRI results we did in Juba, in accordance to Article 27.6 sub article (iii) of the U17 regulations. The complaint was rejected by the medical saying that their first and second readings remains the same.” a part of the statement issued by the SSFA read.

The SSFA said it understands and respects the disqualification decision made by the competition’s organisers.

“We fully understand and respect the decision made by the competition’s organizers, and we apologize to our fans, sponsors, and partners for any disappointment this may cause.

“South Sudan Football Association would like to emphasize that we have always been committed to fair play and sportsmanship. We have taken all the necessary steps to ensure that all our players meet the eligibility criteria set by the competition’s regulations. However, due to unforeseen circumstances, some of our players were unable to participate in the competition.”

Meanwhile, the SSFA expressed gratitude for the ongoing support from fans, sponsors, and partners and stated its intention to participate in future competitions.

A press conference is being planned to provide further information about the team’s disqualification, it said.

If properly nurtured, some of these players will be playing for some big European clubs, in 5 year's time.

The boys are really tapping soccer with their feet. They are good I must tell you!
I wish these guys can be nurtured till they start playing for the Super Eagles but 'NO', they will fizzle away like their predecessors. Nigeria can't manage talent or even nurture one. We kill talents here like Christmas chicken.
May God help us all in this country!
