2:40 pm on 9 November 2013

Nigeria have become the most successful team in under-17 football World Cup history, beating holders Mexico 3-0 in the final in Abu Dhabi.

The game was a rematch of the 6-1 win Nigeria inflicted on the Mexicans in group play and sees the Golden Eaglets lay hands on the junior world trophy for the fourth time in their history - one better than South American giants Brazil.
