Flying Eagles coach confident ahead Germany tie

08 June 2015, 17:16

Wellington - Nigeria U20 head coach Manu Garba believes his side are more than capable of beating Germany to book a place in the last-eight of the U20 World Cup in New Zealand.

After losing their opening game of the tournament to Brazil, the Flying Eagles bounced back superbly with wins over North Korea and Hungary to qualify for the knockout stage of the competition where they will face in-form Germany.

The German side is unbeaten so far in the competition and has scored 16 goals in their three games, but Garba is not intimidated by their European opponents.

"If you want to be champions, you have to be ready for any team. So, we are prepared for Germany or any other team because we want to win this World Cup," he told African Football.

"The most important thing right now is that after losing to Brazil, we have come back to qualify for the next round of the tournament.

"Overall, it was a good game for us. We knew Hungary will try to use the wings and pull out their balls from there, but we stopped them from playing.

"I would probably have been happier had we scored more goals."
