Bosso however warned his players not expect an easy match against the CECAFA champions.

“The Ugandan team are equally qualified and they’re our next opponents and we cannot underrate any team,” Bosso was quoted by CAFonline.

“We all know that Nigeria has qualified to the quarter-final stage and knowing fully that we have an objective of coming out of this place and the least task ahead of us is to pick one of the slots to the FIFA U20 World Cup.

“We’re almost there but it is not yet sealed. We believe and hope that at the end of the regulation time tomorrow we should be celebrating.”
