Sani Emmanuel voted MVP for FIFA U-17 World Cup

My People FC’s Sani Emmanuel has just been named the world’s best U-17 Player, winning the Golden Ball and Silver Boot at the just concluded FIFA U-17 World Cup. To God be the glory…

Nigeria’s Sani Emmanuel was voted the Most Valuable Player of the Fifa Under-17 World Cup, claiming the Golden Ball ahead of Switzerland Nassim ben Khalifah and team mate Ramon Azeez.

Emmanuel also won the Silver Shoe for the second highest goal scorer, behind Spain’s Borja.

Both men, along with Uruguay’s Sebastian Gallegos, scored five goals but the Spaniard had one assist where the other two had none and that proved to be the tie-breaker.

Emmanuel dedicated his award to a long list of people, starting with his teammates.
