FIFA withdraws Eaglets skipper award
Posted on: December 01, 2015, 10:02:26 PM
World football governing body FIFA have withdrawn bronze boot award from Golden Eaglets skipper Kelechi Nwakali at the recent U17 World Cup in Chile and re-awarded it to compatriot Samuel Chukwueze after a mistake

In a letter to the NFF general secretary, Mohammed Sanusi, and signed by Mustapha Fahmy, director of the football division, FIFA admitted their blunder: “We made a mistake at the closing ceremony of the FIFA U-17 World Cup Chile 2015 with the distribution of the adidas Bronze Boot.

“Instead of player no. 8 of Nigeria, Samuel Chukwueze, the player Kelechi Nwakali (player no. 10 of Nigeria) received the adidas Bronze Boot. However, if two or more players are still equal (after goals and assists), the player who has played fewer number of minutes will be ranked first.

“With this in mind, adidas will send you another Bronze Boot in December 2015, which we would kindly ask you to hand over to Samuel Chukwueze. Please be informed that Kelechi Nwakali may keep his trophy.”

Nigeria’s Victor Osimhen scored 10 goals and made two assists to win the Golden Boot, while Johannes Eggestein of Germany scored four goals to win the Silver Boot.

Nwakali, who was voted Most Valuable Player of the Tournament and earned the Golden Ball, tied with compatriot Chukwueze for third place with three goals and three assists.

However, Nwakali played more minutes (630 minutes) as against Chukwueze’s 535 minutes.

Oooops! They should have examined it very well before presenting the award nau, it does not make any sense at all... Imaging that other guy would now have to return the medal he has jubilated and celebrated winning. FIFA nd nonsense sha.

One more thing..... @everest, I don't know why you've decided not to be moving my discussions to the front page anymore.... It's not encouraging at all... After brainstorming for some tiime, I'll come up with a topic and write then type it here so that people can see... But always to my greatest surprise, they don't normally move further to the front page... I don't really know why but I just feel I need some encouragement.

They were NOT copied from anywhere, I actually wrote them mysef.... But it's alright, I'll be specifying the copied ones from now on by giving their source. And I'll be writing my name on the ones I authorized myself. Am I permitted?
