- Flying Eagles head coach, Paul Aigbogun insists the team will give their all to ensure they come out with a win in Wednesday’s Group A clash against hosts Niger at the Africa U -20 Cup of Nations, reports completesports.com.
Aigbogun’s charges top the Group A table with four points from two games, a win and draw against Burundi and the Amajita of South Africa.
A draw will be enough for the seven-time champions to seal a spot in the semi-final of the competition and a place at the FIFA U -20 World Cup in Poland coming up in May irrespective of the result in the other group game between Burundi and South Africa.
Aigbogun is however adamant his team will try to win the game and play for draw.”It’s a normal game that we could not avoid. One thing we know is that Niger is a good team,”
- Aigbogun told reporters at his pre-match press conference at the Seyni Kountche Stadium on Thursday.
“Against South Africa it was difficult despite playing well but we will work hard against Niger. We will fight to win.”
