Golden Eaglets winger, Ibraheem Jabaar, has exclusively spoken to Completesports.com from the team’s camp in Brazil, assuring that they are in top spirit and ready to to beat Ecuador in tonight’s matchday-two Group B game at the ongoing 2019 FIFA U-17 World Cup.
Ecuador are second in Group B behind Nigeria on goal difference following a 2-1 win against Australia on Sunday.
Ahead of tonight’s clash at Estadio Olimpico, Goiania, Jabaar, who came on for Wisdom Ubani on 75 minutes to reinvigorate the Golden Eaglets, leading to a 4-2 comeback win in the opening match on Saturday, says the team is ready to fight for another victory.
“We are not scared of Ecuador. We know they also won their opening game. I know the team we (Eaglets) have. We are not scared at all,” Jabaar told Completesports.com after the team’s training session on Monday.
“We are very ready. With what I saw in today’s (Monday) training: the players’ agility, high spirit and goal scoring, I know we are going to do well against Ecuador.”
Victory for Nigeria tonight will confirm a Round of 16 spot for the Manu Garba’s team with a game to spare.
