Flying Eagles get coach’s warning

26 May 2014, 20:02Israel Ojoko

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.
