04 September 2015, 11:19

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," Amuneke posited.

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.
