Lftp mirror pattern

I have lftp server directory like this:

I want to mirror only content of latest directory with this pattern 13991013 (8digit)
Content of each directory like this : 13991013 > customers1 customers2 customers3
something like this:

mirror -include ^[0-9]{8}$'/*

Any recommendation?

try this
: [0-9][0-9][0-9][0-9][0-9][0-9][0-9][0-9]; echo mirror -include "$_"/*
mirror -include 13991013/customers1 13991013/customers2 13991013/customers3

if everything works correctly, remove the 'echo'

 : [0-9][0-9][0-9][0-9][0-9][0-9][0-9][0-9]; echo mirror -include "$_/*"
mirror -include 13991013/*

Or maybe this will be enough?
: 1*; echo mirror -include "$_/*"
mirror -include 13991013/*

Sorry, I can't understand the question. In the above examples with pattern '[0-9]' ,
the largest eight-digit integer or the pattern itself (if no matches are found) will be displayed in the "$_" variable
try this
: [0-9][0-9][0-9][0-9][0-9][0-9][0-9][0-9]; echo $_

possible you need to find the last directory by modification time.
Then it's better to use 'find' or 'ls' with the option '-t'

--- Post updated at 15:50 ---

try this
: $(ls -dptr [0-9]*); echo $_

--- Post updated at 15:56 ---

mirror --include "$(ls -pt | grep -Em1 '[0-9]{8}/$')*"

check first separately
ls -pt | grep -Em1 '[0-9]{8}/$'

--- Post updated at 16:09 ---

maybe this?
ls -pt | grep -m1 '[0-9]*/$'

Thank you for your reply but it give directory name not content of it.

Currently Output: 13991013

Expected output:

FYI: as I mention before content of each directory is different

Please do not quote everything meaninglessly. This makes it difficult to work with your topic.
The main task was to find the last directory either by number or by creation time.
I still haven't received an answer, we have dealt with the main task or not and which option is right for you.
Just in case, I bring a few and I hope for your detailed answers
mirror --include "$(ls -pt | grep -Em1 '[0-9]{8}/$')"*
mirror --include "$(ls -pt | grep -m1 '[0-9]*/$')"*
