Sports Golden Eaglets hoping to beat Gabon today

Nigeria's Golden Eaglets will be playing host to Gabon,hoping to secure qualification for the 2015 African under 17 championship.

The Golden Eaglets trail Gabon with a 2-1 deficit,having lost the first leg of the qualifiers in Libreville two weeks ago.

Back in Calabar for their home games,coach Emmanuel Amuneke will be banking on home support at the UJ Esuene stadium to overturn the result.

Amuneke has ordered his players to go all out against Gabon,aim for the goals and make sure that they count on the day.

The Golden Eaglets were last year beaten by Ivory Coast in the finals of the African under 17 championship in Morocco,but they went on to win the FIFA under 17 World Cup in the United Arab Emirates(UAE)
