Coaches hail Flying Eagles

19 February 2015, 11:12Israel Ojoko

Accra - Flying Eagles coach Manu Garba, and his Ghanaian counterpart Silas Tetteh have hailed the Nigerian team for a 2-0 victory over their west African opponent in the second of two friendly games between both sides.

Ghana and Nigeria had played a 2-2 draw in the first friendly on Monday before the Garba led side secured a 2-0 win in the second game on Wednesday.

“We had a much better second half after our pep talk at half time. It was also a better performance for my team than what we showed in the first match,” Garba said.

“Ghana too are a very good team and I tip them to go past Group B at the AYC.”

“They are a compact team who showed very good understanding meaning they have been playing together for some time now. It was good to play against such a team,” he said.

“But despite the fact that we lost, we also gave a good account of ourselves as we finalise our preparations for the championship.”
