Amputee Football: Special Eagles Defeat Burundi 11-0 At AAFCON 2024

In an electrifying display of skill and determination, Nigeria’s Special Eagles amputee football team thrashed Burundi 11-0 at the ongoing African Amputee Football Cup of Nations (AAFCON 2024) in Egypt. This historic win marks the team’s biggest margin of victory in a competitive game and propels them into the quarterfinals.

Led by skipper Sarafadeen Oyeleke, the Special Eagles came out firing on all cylinders, with Michael Jewell stealing the show with an incredible seven-goal haul. Mohammed Garima added three more to the tally, while Bolaji Olaogun chipped in with one goal.

This dominant performance comes on the back of a goalless draw with hosts Egypt in their opening match, and the team is now eyeing a spot at the 2026 Amputee Football World Cup in Morocco.

“We’re not just looking to make up the numbers; we’re here to win the trophy,” declared Oyeleke, his eyes fixed on the ultimate prize.

With this convincing win, the Special Eagles have sent a clear message to their opponents: they’re a force to be reckoned with. As they await their next opponents in the quarterfinals, one thing is certain – this team is on a mission to make history!
