What an error! FIFA has claimed they made a mistake by awarding the Bronze Boot at the recently concluded U-17 world cup in Chile to Kelechi Nwakali instead of Samuel Chukwueze. Albeit both netted 3 goals and made 3 assists, the world governing body discovered that Samuel had less playing time than Kelechi.



This was conveyed in a letter written to the NFF and posted on NFF website.

‘Instead of player no. 8 of Nigeria, Samuel Chukwueze, the player Kelechi Nwakali (player no. 10 of Nigeria) received the adidas Bronze Boot. However, if two or more players are still equal (after goals and assists), the player who has played fewer number of minutes will be ranked first,’

‘Adidas will send you another Bronze Boot in December 2015, which we would kindly ask you to hand over to Samuel Chukwueze. Please be informed that Kelechi Nwakali may keep his trophy.’
