WITH a win in the first leg played two weeks ago in Niamey, Nigeria's Golden Eaglets are set to complete the job over their Nigerien counterparts in an African U-17 Championship qualifier.
The Manu Garba lads were merciless against their opponents in the first leg, beating their hosts 4-1.
This weekend, the Eaglets, are expected to have an easy ride over the Nigerians in the second leg billed for the U.J Esuene Stadium, Calabar.
In spite of the comprehensive first leg win, coaches of the Nigerian team are not looking down on the visitors and have told the players to take the encounter seriously.
Assistant coach, Nduka Ugbade expressed confidence that the Eaglets will fly over the Nigeriens again adding that the Nigerian lads will not toy with the visitors.
''We are going into the match with utmost seriousness. That we won the first leg is good, but winning in the presence of our teeming countrymen is the best," he explained.
''We have already prepared the minds of the players towards this and they are ready to beat the Nigeriens again come Saturday,'' said the ex Golden Eaglets skipper.Share
