Lagos - Flying Eagles coach, Manu Garba has warned his
players not to take anything for granted as they continue the qualification
process for the 2015 African Youth Championship.
The Nigerian side defeated Tanzania on a two-legged tie to
book a date with Lesotho in the final round of qualifiers scheduled for August.
“We made a lot of mistakes against Tanzania and some of the
players did not live up to the expectations and these are some of our key
players,” he said.
“We had a better first half than second half. We tried to
save some of our top players after the first half and to give some other
players a chance to show what they can do.”
“And that was how Chidera Eze came in the score, while
Kelechi (Iheanacho) would have scored at least two goals had he been more
clinical in front of goal.”
Manu has however proposed a two-week recess for the team.
“I have proposed that we resume on June 7 either in Abuja or
Kaduna,” he said.
