Former Golden Eaglets coach Sebastian Broderick dies


Former Nigeria U-17 men's national team head coach Sebastian Broderick has died at the age of 85.

Broderick's wife confirmed the situation Wednesday.

He has been battling an unnamed illness for over a year.

Broderick led the Golden Eaglets to success at the inaugural U-16 World Cup in China in 1985.

He also won a silver medal at the 1987 Canada Games, which FIFA eventually promoted to the Under-17 World Cup.

When Nigeria won the championship in China in 1985, Broderick led a coaching staff that also included Bala Shamaki and Christian Chukwu.

He had a successful career as both a player and a coach, and represented Mexico at the 1968 Olympic Games.
