Flying Eagles Midfielder, Offia:  We’ll Perform Better Against USA

Flying Eagles winger Okechukwu Offia is firmly focused on the Nigerian team’s next game against the United States of America at the 2019 FIFA U-20 World Cup in Poland, reports Completesports.com.

Flying Eagles will face the USA in their second Group D match at the Bielsko-Biala Stadium on Monday, May 27. Kickoff is 7:30pm Nigerian time.
Paul Aigbogun’s lads opened their campaign with a 4-0 win against Qatar on Friday in Tychy.

Offia scored Nigeria’s second goal of the game with Maxwell Effiom, Tom Dele-Bashiru and Aliu Salawudeen getting the other goals.

Victory against the Americans who lost their first game 2-1 to Ukraine will see the two-time finalists proceed to the last 16.

“Thank you to everyone who watched and supported us against Qatar,” Offia told reporters in Bielsko-Biala on Sunday.

“It was really a great one and actually I thank God for the goal and most especially it was really good that we got a win in our first game. It was really important

“It builds more confidence in us ahead of other games. The little I watched of the United States and Ukraine, I believe we can do better than we did against Qatar when we play against them. I just believe and I hope that we are going to make it out of the group stage.”

Offia, who plays for Swedish club, IK Sirius also spoke about his goal against the Qatari team.

“It was really good and I was extremely happy because it was my first national team goal in the World Cup,” Offia stated.

“It was really amazing. I hope in the next game we will do a lot better.”

The Flying Eagles top Group D with three points same as Ukraine who have an inferior goal difference. USA and Qatar are without a point in the group.

  • Flying eagles are not to blame. The coach is our problem. NFF is our big problem, Nigerian journalists are our problem. Nepotism, religious-Islam and tribal forces are Nigeria’s plague. Nigeria needs deliverance.
