Golden Eaglets coach wary of Mali

23 April 2014, 12:58Israel Ojoko

Lome - Golden Eaglets coach, Emmanuel Amuneke has warned his wards to be wary of Mali when they meet for the second time in as many days at the WAFU B Under-17 Tournament in Togo on Wednesday at the Stade Municipal.

Nigeria and Mali were left in Group B following the withdrawal of Niger from the tournament and Wednesday's match slated for 3:00pm local time( 4:00pm Nigerian time) would determine who tops the group.

Golden Eaglets had already recorded 2-0 win on Monday and would need at least draw to secure the top position of the group with a chance of meeting Group A runner-up in the semi-final on Friday.

"The game on Monday gave us better ideas about the Malians and I must confess, they are a very good side," Amuneke said after Eaglets training session on Tuesday.

"We had thought the Malians were going to parade big players like they did when we played them during the qualifiers for the 2013 CAN Championship in Morocco, but I'm quite impressed with the young boys they brought here."

The former African Footballer of the Year said his desire at the tournament was to win all his matches and has therefore warned his boys to expect fight back from the Malians.

"Of course, the game on Wednesday would be a total different one because the Malians would want to avenge their defeat but what we just have to consolidate on our position.”
