Nigeria's Under-17 national team yesterday defeated Qatari Premier League side, Al Saad by one goal to nil at the majestic Jassim Bin Hamad Stadium in Doha.

The Qatari currently features the all-time goals leader in the UEFA Champions League competition, as well as Real Madrid and Spain legend, Raul Gonzalez.

The Golden Eaglets are currently touring Qatar and are guests at the famous Aspire Academy (pictured above) and also recently thrashed the team from the latter by seven goals to one.

The tour is part of their preparation for the CAN U-17 Championship in Morocco from April 13-27.

Africa is expected to send four team to the FIFA U-17 World Cup later this year in the United Arab Emirates.

Nigeria has won the U-17 World Cup a record three times with all their triumphs coming on the Asian continent - 1985, 1993 and 2007 in China, Japan and Korea respectively.

This current team is said to probably be the most talented in the history of the Golden Eaglets having scored a whopping twenty-one goals while conceding just one, in the qualifying series for the African zone.
