After qualifying for 2019 African Youth Championship in Niger, head coach of the Flying Eagles, Paul Aigbogun has admitted that there’s still a lot to be done to make his team World beaters, Completesportsnigeria.com reports.
Aigbogun’s side qualified for the 2019 African Youth Championship in Niger defeating Mauritania 6-1 on aggregate in their final qualifying round fixure.
Nazifi Yahaya bagged a hat trick in the encounter. Wasiu Alalade and Aremu Afeez were also on target.
Aigbogun told CSN shortly after the game that he would fortify the team with more quality players who will add new dynamics to the team.
“We are happy we are through to competition proper, but we believe we have a lot more in us to offer,” Aigbogun told CSN.
“The pitch made it difficult for us to play freely, but I guess the harder part of the job has been done. We qualified.
“We won’t rest on our oars, we will keep working hard to ensure we present a good team worth of representing the country at the tournament in Niger.”
On the inclusion of Aremu Afeez, Aigbogun stated that was an easy choice considering the fact that he was available for the game.
He explained: “He’s a good player and it was easy to draft him in because he was available for the game.”
