The head Coach of Nigeria’s U20, Flying Eagles, Manu Garba, has said that his team will win the FIFA U20 world Cup.
Speaking from the team’s base in New Zealand, the Coach who led the country to win a record fourth FIFA U-17 World Cup two years ago said, “It is either the Cup or nothing else for Nigeria”.
The coach was quoted in a statement by the Nigerian Football Federation, NFF.
“There is a lot of pressure but we do not allow it to affect us because once we put yourself under pressure, you are most likely to make a lot of mistakes.
“For us, we do not know the word pressure. We do our best and just pray for mother luck.
“We have all it takes to go all the way and take the Cup back to Nigeria,” the Coach said.
The Flying Eagles, who won the African Youth Championship in Senegal in March, is set for their first match which is against five-time winners of the cup, Brazil, on Monday at 2a.m. Nigerian time.
