Former Head Coach of Nigeria’s U-17 male national team, Sebastine Broderick, has passed on at the age of 85.

Broderick’s wife confirmed the development on Wednesday.

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

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

He also won a silver medal in the 1987 tournament in Canada, which FIFA eventually upgraded to the U-17 World Cup.

Broderick led a coaching crew that also had Bala Shamaki and Christian Chukwu when Nigeria won in China in 1985.

He enjoyed a distinguished career both as a player and coach, representing the country at the 1968 Mexico Olympics.
