Nigeria’s Flying Eagles are expected to embrace their joyous compatriots, as they return after Sunday’s defeat of Senegal in the final of the 2015 African Youth Championship.
President Jonathan has promised to honour them at the State House. The honour may be cash, houses or both. In an election season, the Eagles’ victory is a boost to the incumbent president’s profile.
The Flying Eagles would participate in the 2015 FIFA Under-20 World Cup in New Zealand.
They have won the African Youth Championship for the seventh time.
