The Golden Eaglets are Nigeria's national under-17 football team.
The team won the FIFA U-17 World Cup in 1985 (at the time it was U-16), 1993 and 2007. They also won the African Under-17 Championship in 2001 and 2007, and were runners-up in 1995.
After the 2007 victory there was some discussion as to whether the success should be rewarded in the form of cash, or if longer-term investments were more suitable for teenage players. It was pointed out that some previous players had found themselves reduced to poverty due to injury or mismanagement of their funds.
Heading into the 2009 FIFA U-17 World Cup, head coach Henry Nwosu was replaced by John Obuh, coach of Kwara United. The planning was thrown into disarray however in August when over half the team was determined by bone scanning to be overage and excluded from the team.
