–Says Eaglets will get better soon
Coach of the Nigeria’s U-17 team, Emmanuel Amuneke has expressed satisfaction with his players, despite the 1-1 draw played with local side, Majestic Academy on Saturday.
Amuneke, who is always quick to come down hard on his wards, said the match has helped him to know the lapses in the team and the area to work on before the CAF African U-17 Championship.
“This kind of opposition is good for us since it would let our boys know that nobody would gift us anything”, said Amuneke.
“The boys actually lifted their game in the second half and maybe we could have run away with a win, but for that unfortunate error that caused the penalty.
The former African Footballer of the Year said playing the friendly match against Majesty Academy was another opportunity to ascertain the readiness of the team towards their forthcoming 2015 African U-17 Championship qualifier against Gabon in September.
