Ahead of their final group game at the ongoing AFCON U-20 championship in Niger, Head Coach of Nigeria’s Flying Eagles, Paul Aigbogun has said his lads have learnt from their draw against South Africa and will correct them against Niger on Friday, AOIFootball.com reports.
The former Enyimba gaffer, who is confident of their progression to the knockout stages, said hosts Niger are a good side but his team will fight to ensure victory.
“It’s a normal game that we could not avoid. One thing we know is that Niger is a good team. Against South Africa it was difficult game despite we played very well. But we will work hard against Niger and we will fight to win,” Aigbogun said at the pre-match presser.
The Flying Eagles need just a point to confirm their progression to the semifinals and also book one of the four world cup tickets, whilst a defeat could be disastrous, especially if South Africa defeats Burundi in the other group game.
Nigeria however currently top Group A with four points from their opening two games, two points ahead of Niger and South Africa who both have two points each.
