Golden Eaglets right-back Yahaya Lawali was named in the 2023 CAF U-17 AFCON Team of the Tournament.
The tournament’s best eleven was published on CAF’s Twitter handle on Sunday.
Senegal, who beat Morocco 2-1 to emerge champions of this year’s U-17 AFCON, dominate the best eleven with four players.
Third-placed winners Burkina Faso has three players while Nigeria and runners-up Morocco both have one.
Lawali won two Match of the Match awards in the group games against Zambia and Morocco.
Unfortunately the Eaglets missed the chance to qualify for the U-17 World Cup after losing 2-1 to Burkina Faso in the quarter-finals.
Meanwhile, Senegal, Morocco, Burkina Faso and Mali will represent Africa at this year’s World Cup.
