Lagos - Golden Eaglets coach Emmanuel Amuneke has admonished
his wards to step up their game in their subsequent matches at the ongoing
Suwon Invitational Tournament in South Korea.
The four-time world champions were held to a 1-1 draw by
hosts, South Korea in their first game on Wednesday, and are set to face Brazil
in their next match and Amuneke has been telling the players they must improve.
He said: “I want to commend all of you because there were
doubts about what you can do before we came here but we have to be focused
especially against Brazil on Friday.

"Of course, Brazil would be a tougher match but that
can only be possible if you allow them to play," explained Amuneke with a
dossier on the Brazilian team.
"We need power, skill and coordination against Brazil
and if you do what is needed, we won't have much problem on Friday,"
Meanwhile, Captain Kelechi Nwakali is set to join the team
for their second match against Brazil at the Suwon Invitationnal Tournament.
The midfielder couldn't travel with the rest of the team to
Korea due to a visa hitch, but the Nigeria Football Federation have confirmed
he will be with the team in time for the game against Brazil.For
