Description Age Falsification in Africa has been an age long issue. The perennial syndrome of age-cheating which continues to dog age-grade football in African countries cast a spell over the golden Eaglets. In 1989, FIFA placed a two year ban on Nigeria from participating in FIFA age-grade tournaments and also withdrew the country’s right to host the 1991 World Youth Championship, for alleged falsification of ages of three players. The Federation of International Football Association (FIFA) ,for the first time since its establishment in 1930 , introduced Magnet Resonance Image (MRI) machine to ascertain the true age of players who represented their various nations at the Under-17 World Cup, Nigeria 2009. Jenifer Okoye of Confluence Cable Network, Nigeria, finds out how the acclaimed Giant of Africa Nigeria can curb this Syndrome.
