Lagos - Former Nigeria U20 coach John Obuh has advised the Flying Eagles not to be ‘too anxious to score’, when they play the Hungarian U20’s in their last group game of the ongoing FIFA U20 World Cup on Sunday.

The Nigerian U20’s take on their Hungarian counterparts at the Stadium Taranaki in New Plymouth on Sunday morning, in what will sure be a decider on who automatically joins Brazil in the next round of the competition.

And Obuh, a two time U20 World Cup coach with Nigeria, believes the Nigerian team must be meticulous in their approach and avoid being overexcited.

“The Hungarians are definitely going to be better than the North Koreans, so we have to be meticulous in our approach, not get too anxious to score.
“It is a game they also need so I believe it will be highly tactical because they will be looking for loopholes in our team.

“We must keep our concentration and not get too excited and start making mistakes because I believe they will punish our mistakes if we give them the chance.

“We have made some mistakes in our first two games and I believe the coaches must have made corrections and if we can keep the concentration, we can win,” Obuh said.
