WAFU U-17: Golden Eaglets Must Fight Hard To Beat Togo — Manu Garba

Golden Eaglets head coach Manu Garba says his side will go all out for a win against Togo on Wednesday.

The defending champions recorded their first win at the WAFU B-17 Championship against Niger Republic on Sunday.

Rapha Adams nodded home on 30 minutes to hand the Golden Eaglets a 1-0 victory.

Nigeria now need just a point from the game against Togo to advance to semi-final.

The Togolese are already eliminated from the competition having lost their opening two games against Niger and Burkina Faso.

Garba however said his side want maximum points from the game.

“We will have to beat Togo on Wednesday. They are a good side and we will not underrate them,” Garba said.

“We have trained the players on goal scoring drills. Nigeria should have scored three goals against Niger. So, we hope that the players will convert their chances against Togo.”

The Golden Eaglets currently occupy second position on the Group B table with four points from two games.

Burkina Faso top the group with same points but have a superior goal difference.

    After this tournament just create a competition and auditions for every department in the team including that Cletus except the GK. The rest must be open trials whoever is better should be selected. I know you know what is at stake if you qualify with this average team at your disposal due to short notice by the demons at the NFF. Your team has never been this wasteful and oppressed by opponents. Please don’t fail those who trust in you. Watching this tournament is a bit strange unlike your team!!!!

    One coach gets supports because of his past achievements with the under 17’s but the other get severe scolding and tongue-lashing from the fans,i don’t get it..
    Bosso’s team play good football and twice he made it to the quarter finals of the under 20’s and his teams are usually loaded with gifted players.
    Meanwhile,Manu Garba could only get to the second round in the 2015 under 20 world cup.
    Commonly,the NFF at it again with the flying eagles not in camp yet,waiting for the last moment to gather the boys to play in the WAFUZ zone b
