Super Eagles midfielder, Ogenyi Onazi has thrown his weight behind the Golden Eaglets ahead of Sunday’s FIFA U17 World Cup final showdown against Mali.
The Eaglets will be hoping to be crowned the world champions for a record fifth time but first they must overcome fellow West African nation Mali at the Vina del Mar on Sunday evening.
Onazi who now plies his trade with Serie A outfit Lazio in a tweet on his official twitter handle wished the Emmanuel Amuneke led side all the best as they confront a Mali side that overcame Belgium 3-1 for a place in the finals in Chile.

I was once there, so I wish you guys the best so that you go one ahead of us. #GoldenEaglets #ChampionsInWaiting.” Onazi tweeted.
