Dar es Salaam - Flying Eagles coach, Manu Garba says their 2-0 victory over Tanzania in the first leg, second round African Youth Championship qualifier clash was a good omen for the team.
After a barren first half, goals from Musa Yahaya in the 49th minute and Taiwo Awoniyi in the 82nd minute ensured Nigeria secure maximum points.
“This win away from home is very, very good for us going into the return leg match in Nigeria,” Flying Eagles coach Garba told reporters after the match watched by a fair crowd at the 60,000-capacity National Stadium in Dar es Salaam.
“Tanzania also showed they are a very good side, but they will have to work on their finishing.”
“Overall, it was the better team that won even though I was not completely satisfied with the final 15 minutes of the game as we sat back in our defence.”
