Add the connection here to what Ugbowo had shared with us about how the NFF selects the U17 team we begin to get a picture of how the team is selected rather that the spurious claim that NFF deliberately looks for those who are over the age as long as they can pass the MRI.

Top Five Performers In Golden Eaglet 5-1 Win Over Cote d’Ivoire – Amoo Akinkumi Tops Them All

The Nigeria U17 team bounced back to winning ways with a convincing 5-1 win over Cote d’Ivoire to seal their spot in the semi-final of the WAFU B Championship Qualifiers for the African U17 Championship.

Owngoalnigeria.com watched the game and our correspondent picks five players who were outstanding in the game which was dominated by the Nigerian team.

Akinkumi AmooA star at the NPFL U15 Promises for Shotting Stars. Struggled with his final ball in the first game which they lost 2-3 to Burkina Faso but recovered to post a performance which earned him the man of the match award. Scored a well taken goal from the spot. Provokes memory of past Nigeria U17 ace Samuel Chukwueze ‎now at La Liga side Villarreal.

‎Hassan HussainAnother product of the NPFL U15 Promises tournament. He picked up from where he left off in the first game where he starred despite the loss to Burkina Faso. Bossed the game from the midfield and took his goal very well.

Olakunle Olusegun – Three goals in two games and should have scored more if not for his failure to convert numerous begging chances. A wing forward who is not just good at creating but also scoring goals. A star for the future. [SEE BELOW]

Oluwatimilehin Adeniyi – The top ‎striker for the Nigerian team. He was a focal point of the attack for the team and got the goal his performance deserve. Still need to work on his positioning and composure in the box.

Olatomi Olaniyan – Got everybody asking about his identity with the way he took out his markers with ease. Adept at using both feet and also clinical in front of goal.

ABS FC Defeats Katsina Utd 3-1 to Emerge NPFL U-15 Champions

Abubakar Bukola Saraki (ABS) Football Club at the weekend defeated hard fighting Katsina United 3-1 to emerge champions of the maiden Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) Under-15 Tournament at the Agege Stadium, Lagos.Â
Niger Tornadoes pipped Rangers International 1-0 to claim the third place. Tornadoes goal came off a Yahaya Abba Yahaya ferocious free kick on the 22nd minute leaving Okoh Chizoba in goal for Rangers completely beaten. It was the first defeat for Rangers in the tournament and it turned out the most important win for their opponents..Â
Oni Williams had opened scoring for ABS three minutes from the start with a well placed shot after he was set up by skipper Olakunle Olusegun. The shot left goalkeeper Aliyu Sanni with no chance.Â
Afeez Ajao should have doubled the lead on the 8th minute when he elected for power instead of simply placing the ball with the Goalkeeper at his mercy. Katsina United won a penalty on 25th minute when ABS defender, Suleiman Majid tripped Hussain Mohammed in the box. Hussain picked himself up to convert and restore parity.Â
ABS upped the game on resumption of the second half and was immediately rewarded on the very first minute when Bello Sufian scored the first of his two goals with a cool finish after good work from tournament Most Valuable Player Olusegun Olakunle. The young striker deservedly got his brace four minutes later to add gloss to the score line.
ABS should have put daylight between them and their opponents if they had converted the several chances that came their way. Jamiu Lasoju and Afeez Ajao were the biggest culprits as they wasted several scoring chances.
Trophy and medals were presented to the winners by Iwuala who was assisted by Barradas and Adepoju
Koma Million of Rangers International emerged the highest goal scorer with 11 goals. The youngster who admires Bobby Clement says he looks forward to playing in the Flying Antelopes first team in the near future.
The Golden Ball for the most valuable player of the tournament went to Olusegun Olakunle of ABS, while defender Chukwuemeka Egbu of Rangers won the Silver ball. Nasel Bussa who saved two penalties for FC Ifeanyi Ubah on their way to the finals in Lagos won the bronze ball as the third best player of the tournament.
The final game was watched by Antonio Baradas, the Director of Africa operations of LaLiga, partners of the NPFL, Head, Special Projects of the League Management Company (LMC), Harry Iwuala and a former Super Eagles captain and Country Manager of LaLiga in Nigeria, Mutiu Adepoju.
Meanwhile, the Senate President, Dr. Abubakar Bukola Saraki, has congratulated the Abubakar Bukola Saraki (ABS) Football Club for winning the maiden U-15 NPFL cadet tournament.
Saraki in a statement by his Special Adviser, Media and Publicity, Yusuph Olaniyonu, in Abuja, commended the sterling efforts made by the players and their technical crew throughout the period of the competition before capping it with a resounding 3-1 victory in their final match against Katsina United.Â
He also commended the organisers of the tournament for their objective which is to groom talents for the national team.
Olaniyonu noted that the competition which involved over 400 Under-15 teenagers from 20 NPFL clubs was a giant step in proactive youth engagement, crime reduction and the discovery of future super stars for the country.
Saraki said: “While I commend the ABS Club for their superlative performance that enabled them to win the competition, I also want to congratulate all the clubs that participated in the tournament.Â
“The successful hosting of the inaugural edition of the NPFL U-15 Promises Tournament, once again, points clearly to one fact: that the country is replete with talents that need to be harnessed, not only to advance our game of football but to develop the country in all ramifications”, he said.
The Senate President also reiterated his earlier call for corporate organisations to make the sponsorship of sporting activities in the country a priority as part of their Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), in view of the lean resources available to government.Â

I believe it's the same Olakunle Olusegun in the NFF U13 video below (starts from 8:50min). This was back in 2013.

Meanwhile, this kid doesn't seem to be part of the U17 set up yet, probably because he is still too young...

Probably still in the U15 squad.
