Garba hails Flying Eagles

11 December 2014, 16:19Israel Ojoko

Kaduna - Flying Eagles coach Manu Garba said he was satisfied with the many chances his team created against a good Jamba Academy side, but would blame match rustiness with his team’s poor finishing.

Flying Eagles defeated Jamba 4-1 on Thursday in their first test game.

“We created many chances to score, but we failed to take most of them,” Manu said.

“Probably the problem may be that we have been on break for over three months and so many of these players are now match rusty.

“But in a proper game we may not create as many such chances and so the more reason why we must take most of our chances now.”

Manu also saluted Jamba Academy, but said some of the new call-ups have to do much more to stay on the squad.

“Jamba are not a bad team from what they showed against us, but all the new players who played today (Thursday) for us have to do much more to get into this team because they are not close to the players we already know,” he said.

Academy owner Jamba Zira said he was proud of his team’s display against a national team.

“My boys gave a good account of themselves and even scored the best goal of the entire match,” he remarked.

“We can only learn from this experience.”
