The head coach of the Nigeria U20 team the Flying Eagles Ladan Bosso has highlighted what they needed to do to stop the Scorpion of Gambia.
The Flying Eagles will confront Gambia in the first semi-final of the U20 African Cup of Nations on Monday and Bosso is already hoping they can scale the hurdle against the Gambians.
” We planned with the least target of qualifying Nigeria for the World Cup and we have done just that.
So the next thing for us now is to play in the final and to play in the final you have to subdue your opponent in the semi-final.
The Gambia will be our next opponent and we hope to do whatever we can to ensure we reach the final.
We hope Nigerians can have confidence in us and we will see how we can manage the game and get through to the final.
I have seen them play and I knew their abilities and we have such abilities too, knowing fully that we have been missing chances in our previous games and that is our coaching point before this match and I think our players should be able to have a changed attitude and settle down in the opponent half and not to be selfish and with that, we have a chance against Gambia.
We will do our best and the day can be for Nigeria, not the team”, he said during a press conference.
