Aigbogun: Flying Eagles Have No Reason To Fail At AAG In Morocco

Aigbogun: Flying Eagles Have No Reason To Fail At AAG In Morocco

Flying Eagles coach, Paul Aigbogun has told Completesports.com in an exclusive chat that he and his boys have no reason not to make Nigeria proud in the men’s football event of the 12th All Africa Games in Morocco given their good preparation and motivation the players feel.

Flying Eagles have undergone an intensive preparation in Abuja after the 2019 FIFA U-20 World Cup finals in Poland where they failed to impress, and the former Enyimba coach took time out to carefully select his final squad.


The Flying Eagles are expected to depart for Morocco aboard Air Maroc on Wednesday morning .

“We are conscious of the expectation of Nigerians on the team,” Aigbogun told Completesports.com.

“We’ve worked hard in training and the boys are determined too. We have no reason not to deliver.

“It is going to be a collective effort, in which case we expect Nigerians to as usual stand behind us with their support”.

The Flying Eagles are in the same Group A with hosts Morocco, as well as Burkina Faso and South Africa.

Aigbogun’s charges will get their campaign underway on Friday August 16 in Dtade Hassan, Moulay, Rabat against Burkina Faso.

Four days later (on August 20), they will take on South Africa before caping up the group phase on August 23 with a clash against the host nation, Morocco.

    Don’t raise our hopes. You got nothing to offer.

    Hahahahaha….Nigerians….one coach chooses to be humble and take a chill pill before tournaments….you people say he is being timid and lacks esteem.
    Now another is giving you all the bragado that you desire, yet you complain.

    ‘Eda Adamo’ (apologies to Chief commander Ebenezer Obey The Man, His Son and The Horse)

    • Hahahaha…ha. Aigbogun don fall him hand badder badder. Gonna be an herculean task to ever win fans over again. Won’t waste my precious time with this team.

    Go and disgrace us with ur poor technical capacity. I have lost all hopes in you, you scare me from my television!

      Well,this coach may disappoint you and turn a hero.Personally i see Aigbogun as a good coach who qualified us for the world cup after we missed out in the previous edition.
      However,things didn’t go well at the world cup as we exited in the second round.
      Candidly,the only game his boys was outplayed was the United states.I wouldn’t write him off just yet nor join the bandwagon calling for his sack because i am yet to see anything to justify that claim.
      I think honestly he’s the right man for the job.
      Some of his qualities aside coaching is his ability to lure foreign players of Nigerian decent to change allegiance.
      Born in England and currently based in the UK, some of the factors that worked well for him in luring this foreign kids.A locally based Nigerian coach would have struggled to link up with this players.The likes of Dele Bashiru is one of our own thanks to Aigbogun and i believe many more will follow in the next couple of years as he get set to thinker us to another under 20 world cup.

        May God forbid that you are calling for Aigbogun to handle the flying eagles for two more years.
        Imagine, your sole reason for that been his ability to lure foreign born players to play for us, inukwa! My brother, some of us that knows coach Aigbogun right from his days at Enyimba has complained bitterly about his team’s inability to string three to four passes together. Also, his midfield finds it hard connecting to the attack. All these showed in his management of d flying eagles.
        OK, in case you you’ve not been paying attention, watch his team again in this all African games and come back to comment.
        Anyway, am sure d NFF only allowed him to handle this team because of the closeness of the game. Aigbogun is not a good coach, period!

          I saw the African playoffs and was impressed by his teams performances where they dominated all their games but the strikers failed him why he did a wholesale change in that department prior to the world cup.
          Aigbogun took a rag tagged flying eagles to the final of the wafu cup and qualified us for the world cup yet he’s a bad coach I see it differently tough.
          I never said his only good point was luring foreign players of Nigerian decent read a post properly lad rather that’s one of his good qualities.In my opinion he deserves to thinker this team at least the next couple of years hopefully with a better fortune this time around.

      • @greenturf Well spoken from your own point of view, especially on emphasis on his ability to lure foreign players of Nigerian decent to play for Nigeria. If l may get you correctly that this is his greatest assets, it means there is a misplaced of priority here by the NFF. It’s like putting a square peg in a round hole. In my own opinion, this man should have been appointed as a SCOUT and not a COACH. The coach could not prove his worth as a coach at the world cup and l don’t see him leading us to anywhere. Nevertheless l stand to be proven wrong.
