New Plymouth - Following their 4-0 win over North Korea in their second group game of the ongoing FIFA U20 World Cup in New Zealand, Flying Eagles coach Manu Garba has posited that his team did not just win the match, but also entertained the crowd.
The Nigerian U20’s revived their chances of progressing from group E, with an emphatic win over the North Koreans, and Manu has been speaking on the outcome of the match.
“It's not all about winning, but it's about entertaining the crowd, and that's something that our side did,” the Nigeria U20 coach said in the post-match press conference.
Speaking further, the former Nigeria international also said his team didn’t do the ‘right things’ in the first half, but got it right in the second, hence the four goals they got in the second period.

“We had a plan for what we wanted to do (in the first half) but they weren't doing the right thing. We talked to the team, and in the second half they got the job done.”
But despite sending the Asians to the cleaners, the Nigeria coach was gracious in victory, as he praised the Koreans for their display.
“Korea DPR have a good side, and they played much better than they did against the Hungarians, but they are lacking when it comes to finishing,” Manu posited.
Two goals from Godwin Saviour and one each from Kingsley Sokari and substitute Isaac Success ensured Nigeria got their campaign back on track after the opening day loss to Brazil.
