Abuja - While they carry a seemingly healthy lead following their impressive 2-0 away victory over Tanzania in the first leg of the second round of the 2015 Africa Youth Championship, the under-20 national team is not taking any chances in its quest to wrap up the return match.
Bubbling with confidence, an excited under-20 coach, Manu Garba said their victory in Tanzania in the first leg of the second round of the 2015 Africa Youth Championship was no fluke, but went down to hard work.
Nonetheless, Garba said though his boys did not fully display the techniques he taught them, especially in the dying moments of the game, he was however pleased with the away victory saying his charges would sail through to the next stage of the competition.
“Overall, it was the better team that won (Nigeria) even though I was not completely satisfied with the final 15 minutes of the game as we sat back in our defence,” Garba said.
In a hard fought encounter, the Nigeria under-20 squad grabbed their crucial away goals courtesy of the boots of Musa Yahaya and Taiwo Awoniyi to ensure the second encounter in Nigeria would seem like a walkover.
