Garba : Golden Eaglets Ready To Conquer The World Again

Golden Eaglets head coach Manu Garba says the team is fired up to win a sixth title at the 2019 FIFA U-17 World Cup in Brazil, reports Completesports.com.

The five-time winners of the competition are once again among the favourites to win competition that begins on Saturday despite finishing fourth at the Africa U-17 Nations Cup in Tanzania early in the year.

“Everyone should get ready to see a fantastic Nigerian team that play great football and have the trophy in their sights,” Garba confidently told FIFA.com.

“Ecuador, Hungary and Australia are undoubtedly strong teams that we respect, but we are record-breaking world champions and I was involved in two of our title wins.”

Indeed, Garba was head coach when the African side clinched victory in the United Arab Emirates in 2013, and served as Yemi Tella’s assistant six years earlier.

“The will to win every game is part of the DNA of every Nigerian team, and my team here in Brazil is no exception,” he said.

The Golden Eaglets will face Hungary in their first game on Saturday.

    Fly Eaglets, fly high and conquer the world again! But to do that you’ve got to take your chances and do not be selfish with the ball. The team should work hard to replicate their predecessors’ successes.
