The Coach of Ghana Black Satellites, Silas Tetteh, has said the Flying Eagles are a very good side who gave his team a test in the two friendly games they played.
The Flying Eagles had first played a 2-2 draw with their Ghanaian counterparts before turning up style to beat the same team 2-0 in another friendly on Wednesday.
For Coach Tetteh, the Nigeria U20s have the hallmark of a compact team capable of wrecking any opponent.
“(The Flying Eagles) are a compact team who showed very good understanding meaning they have been playing together for some time now. It was good to play against such a team,” he said.
The Ghana Coach was however quick to state that despite falling to the Flying Eagles, his side is also a good team and that they will also give a good account of themselves at the Africa Youth Championships in Senegal in March.
“Despite the fact that we lost, we also gave a good account of ourselves as we finalise our preparations for the championship,” the coach assured.
After their display in Ghana, the Flying Eagles are expected back in Nigeria Thursday to continue preparations for the fast approaching AYC.
The Nigeria U20s are in a tough first round group that has hosts Senegal as well as Cote d’Ivoire and Congo.
The AYC will be played between March 8 and 22.
The Flying Eagles have won a record six AYC titles with their last triumph being in 2011. They finished third at the last edition held in Algeria.
