Future Eagles Arrive Nigeria After Japan’s Dream Cup Tournament

Nigeria National U15 Boys, the Future Eagles, have arrived in Abuja from Japan where they participated in the Four-Nation Invitational Tournament.

Future Eagles finished third in the 2019 International Dream Cup in Japan with three points, scoring five goals.
Team captain Oluwatobi Adeleke told thenff.com: “We appreciate the Nigeria Football Federation for this great opportunity. The exposure and the platform will make us better. We came to Japan to learn and compete with three other continents. Actually, we had our target to finish as the best team in the tournament, but we could not in spite of winning our first game. The exposure is important for us and we have learnt so much at this tournament.”
Nigeria started the tournament with a 3-1 win over Mexico on 12th June, but lost against the host country Japan 4-1 on 14th June and against Romania 3-1 on the last day of the tournament on 16th June.

However, Japan emerged champions of the U16 International Dream Cup after defeating Mexico 5-0 in their final game on Sunday. Japan finished top with nine points, while Romania finished second. Nigeria were third with three points and Mexico finished bottom of the championship with only one point.
