Minister of sports and youth development, Mr. Sunday Dare, was in ecstatic mood few minutes ago as the Golden Eaglets of Nigeria opened their 2019 FIFA U-17 World Cup campaign with a 4-2 victory over Hungary at the Estádio Olímpico, Goiânia, Brazil. Dare, who saw the match in his Ibadan, the Oyo State capital home, could not hide his joy as jumped from his seat when the golden eaglets equalized.

Gyorgy Komaromi had opened scoring for Hungary as early as three minutes into the match, with Samson Tijani converting a penalty for Nigeria after 20 minutes.
