The Chairman of the Nigeria Football Federation, NFF’s Technical Committee, Felix Anyansi-Agwu, has assured Nigerians that the U20 Flying Eagles will bounce back after suffering a 4-2 defeat against Brazil on Monday Morning.
In a chat with journalists in Abuja, Mr. Anyansi-Agwu said it is rather too early to put pressure on the boys and also assure they would bounce back in no time.
“Nigerians should not lose hope the boys will bounce back soon, I want to assure them” he said. “It is too early to give pressure it is a psychological thing.”
He commended the reigning African Champions for playing a quality game against Brazil, who are five-time winners of the U20 World Cup, and also predicted a Nigeria/Brazil finals at the tournament.
“At the beginning they did very well,” he said. “The game standard was very high I must say, and both teams may likely meet at the finals once again.”
Nigeria will meet Group E counterpart, Korea DPR on Thursday for their second match at the ongoing tournament in New Zealan.
