Abuja - Aminu Maigari, the chairman of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), on Monday charged the Golden Eaglets to go for an outright win against Sweden at the ongoing FIFA U-17 World Cup.
Nigeria is scheduled to meet Sweden on October 22 in a Group F encounter at the ongoing FIFA U-17 World Cup in the United Arab Emirates (UAE).
Maigari gave the charge in a statement in Abuja, released by NFF's assistant director of media, Ademola Olajire.
"The Eaglets should clinically disorientate and dismantle their counterparts from Sweden when both teams clash on Tuesday in their second Group F game.
"It is a top-of-the-table clash that we expect our boys to control from start to finish and not allow the Swedes any breathing space.
"It will be good for our boys’ confidence if they can qualify for the Round of 16 ahead of the final matches of the group phase.
"Of course, we know they have the ammunition to do it and they will do it.
"They are very focused and they have some of the most disciplined personalities in the history of football in the country as coaches,” the statement quoted Maigari to have said.
The Eaglets are on top of Group F on goals difference after they defeated Cup-holders Mexico 6-1 in their first match on Saturday, while the Swedes thrashed Iraq 4-1.
The match scheduled for the Khaled Bin Zayed Stadium in the Al Ain City will kick off at 5pm Nigerian time.
