Amuneke: We Are Gradually Taking shape

24 September 2015, 20:32

Abuja - As the FIFA U17 World Cup fast approaches, Golden Eaglets coach Emmanuel Amuneke says his team is gradually taking shape.

The Nigerian U17's are champions of the competition having won it the last in the United Arab Emirates two years ago, and start their defense of the title on October 17 against the United States of America.

And Amuneke, who had hitherto said his team was yet to reach the level that he wanted, now says they are gradually taking shape, after beating Shekarau Babes 2-1 in a friendly.

 "I think we are gradually getting there, the players are understanding what we want from them and I believe we will get there before the World Cup starts.

Like I always say, the road to success is always under construction and we are still a work in progress but I think we have made some serious improvements.

"We just need to keep our focus and the friendly games we have played have showed us the areas we need to improve on and we are working assiduously to achieve perfection.

"The boys are understanding what we expect them to do when we have the ball and when we don't and that is something that will come into play at the World Cup," Amuneke said.
