Omu-Aran (Kwara) – Video clips of Golden Eaglets’ final match in the just concluded FIFA U-17 World Cup in Dubai, are now in high demand among football fans in Omu-Aran, Kwara.
The development has raised the price of the clips, from N100 to N200 per copy.
Although the video clips of the entire group matches involving the team are also in high demand, that of the final match between the Eaglets and their Mexican counterparts, sells more among the fans.
One of the Vendors, who simply identified himself as Chukwuka, said that he was surprised at the high demand for the match DVDs.
Chukwuka said he had already exhausted his supply.
“In fact, I had to hurriedly call our main office in Ilorin to supply more of the DVD’s due to the high demand.
Mr Yemi Aransiola, President of the Omu-Aran Youth Forum (OYF), described the development as healthy for the growth and development of sports in the country.
“With this feat, I think the Eaglets have once again aligned with the senior team, to create the love for our national team for the growth of sports in the country.
“The situation was different few years back, when Nigerians preferred watching European matches to the detriment of our own national side.
“I think the euphoria started with Super Eagles’ victory in South Africa, and will continue to linger in the memory of our youths for a very long time to come,” he said.
