U-17 World Cup: Golden Eaglets Pair Seek Revenge Against Croatia

Golden Eaglets players, John Lazarus and David Enogela, have both expressed their desires in avenging against Croatia when they clash on Friday in their last group game at the FIFA U-17 World Cup.

Both teams met in September at the Suwon Invitational Tourney in South Korea, with the Croatians winning 3-2.


The Eaglets pair have promised they and their team-mates will make sure they get their pound of flesh this time.

"We were unlucky against Croatia in Suwon because we were leading them 2-1 until few minutes to the end of the match," Lazarus told the Nigeria Football Federation official website.

"They got a penalty to equalise and the winning goal later and that stopped us from winning the tournament.
"We won't allow that to happen against us on Friday and we will work harder to win."

Enogela added: "We saw in Suwon how physical they (Croatia) can play and I agree with Lazarus that they were lucky to have beaten us.

"We are going to ensure that they don't beat us on Friday and that means we have to be at our best, because they need the result more than us."

The Eaglets would be without defensive midfielder, Udochukwu Anumudu, who was booked against USA and Chile.

They will also be without Funsho Bamgboye who got a red card against Chile.
