Amuneke restates importance of Korea Invitational Tourney

02 September 2015, 14:35

Seoul - Ahead of their participation at the Korea invitational tournament, Golden Eaglets Coach Emmanuel Amuneke has again reiterated that tournament would be a good test for the Golden Eaglets ahead of the FIFA U-17 World Cup in Chile.

Speaking at the tournament's opening media conference at the Suwon World Cup Stadium along with his counterparts from Korea, Croatia and Brazil, Amuneke admitted all the contenders have to be respected because of their strong pedigree.

“It is a privilege to be here and we hope this is going to be an interesting tournament to prepare us for the challenge in Chile," began the former African Footballer of the Year.

"We are not being carried away as the defending champions because this is a new team and we have some new players that need to be exposed to the challenge of playing at the World Cup."

Amuneke said there was nothing wrong playing in Suwon against Croatia who are Golden Eaglets' group phase rivals in Chile, adding there is little or nothing to hide. He explained: "In this modern age, there is little you can hide about your team but what is important is how the players adapt and comport themselves in every game.

“The four teams at the tournament in Suwon are very good teams and we have to respect every one of them, “Amuneke further said. “ It is important for the boys to be exposed to these sorts of matches since it would be a good preparation for us going to Chile.”
