Nigeria retained the Under-17 World Cup on Sunday by beating Mali 2-0 in an all-African final in Chile.

Three minutes later Funsho Bamgboye added a second and ensured Nigeria became only the second country to defend the title.

Nigeria coach Emmanuel Amuneke told "We have worked very hard for this success and we hope to continue.

"The players will go home now but their journey is not over yet. I have football in my blood, as a player and as a coach. This is what I want to pass to my players."
