A former U17 World Cup-Winning Coach, Manu Garba, has said that the Niger 2015-bound Golden Eaglets managed by Coach Emmanuel Amuneke will go all the way at the 11th African cadet championship.
While watching the team play Sokoto United in Kaduna at the Ahmadu Bello Stadium on Saturday, Coach Garba drew out some positives, advising Nigerians to rally behind the team’s quest for glory in Niger Republic.
“It would be wrong to start comparing this present team with the one that won the World Cup,” said Garba who now handles the Flying Eagles.
“I was particularly impressed by the two well-planned goals. The team will surely qualify for the world Cup and with inclusion of other good players and good preparations; we can conquer the world again” he said
“Good luck to the team in Niger as we shall keep on praying for all our national teams especially under- 17 and U20 because they are the future of the senior team,” he added.
The Golden Eaglets arrived Abuja Sunday, wherein they would continue with preparations ahead of next month’s CAN U-17 Championship to be hosted in Niger between February 15 and March 1.
