The most successful team in the history of FIFA Under-17 World Cup, the Golden Eaglets spanked their Hungarian counterparts 4-2 in the 2019 U17 World Cup which opened on Saturday in their first game.

The Eaglets commenced the quest for the Trophy on a very positive note after Hungary had taken the lead in the third minute.

The young athletes came from behind twice to overcome their opponents and finally capped it up with to late goals to seal the win.

See highlights of the match:

A day before the match, the Minister of Youth and Sports Development, Sunday Dare, had charged the Golden Eaglets to display the Nigerian spirit and win the 2019 FIFA U-17 World Cup in Brazil for a record sixth time.

The minister gave the charge on Friday in an interview with newsmen in Abuja.

“I watched their final training here (in Abuja) before they left for Brazil and I told them the only option is winning. And that is justified by the fact that they are five times world champions.

“What I also saw on display was encouraging. I saw talented football players that can compete with any other team in the world.

“All I can say is that Nigerians are solidly behind this team, we believe they can bring glory to our country; and as they compete for the sixth title, we expect they will win the World Cup because they are indeed champions,” he said.
