Amuneke warns against complacency

24 July 2014, 13:35Israel Ojoko

Lagos - Golden Eaglets coach Emmanuel Amuneke has warned his wards against any form of complacency even as he craves for a winning mentality in their African Under-17 championship qualifier against Democratic Republic of Congo.

The eagerly awaited match according to Federation Congolaise de Football Association (FECOFA) would take place on Saturday (July 26) after the Confederation of African Football (CAF) graciously shifted it from July 20 due to earlier suspension of the NFF by FIFA.

"Now is the moment of truth for us because the serious business of qualification for Niger 2015 would begin for us in Congo," Amuneke informed the players.

"All what we have done before is now in the past because we would now be judged based on our performance particularly in this match."

Speaking during Wednesday's training at the University of Calabar, Amuneke told the players to have nothing but a winning attitude, assuring that the players selected for the encounter are fit and ready to do the country proud yet again.

"We must go to Congo with the sole objective of winning and that is the mental attitude we must all have," noted the 1994 African Footballer of the Year.

"We must be ready to show all what we have been learning in our training and we the coaching crew believe that you have what it takes to win this match but we must not be over confident."
