Nwosu orders Eaglets to demolish Cote d’Ivoire

Former Golden Eaglets’ coach, Henry Nwosu, has urged the Manu Garba side to go all out against West African foes, Cote d’Ivoire in tomorrow’s Group B match at the ongoing 10th Africa Under-17 Championship in Morocco.

The Eaglets opened their title account at the cadets’ championship with a 6–1 spanking of perennial foes, the Black Starlets of Ghana in Marrakech on Sunday. Nwosu said the Eaglets should double their work rate as they have clearly become the championship favourites.

“The Eaglets should not relent on their effort but double the work rate against any opponents coming their way.

“They’re the team to beat at the moment as well as the tournament favourites. Every team will come at them well prepared. So, if they had operated at 80 per cent previously, they should up it to 100 per cent.

“Cote d’Ivoire will be aiming to dent their record and get a win but I believe if the Eaglets don’t allow complacency to set in, they will emerge victorious against the Ivoriens. “They have a very bright chance of qualifying from the group ahead of their opponents and something tells me they will head to the FIFA Under-17 World Cup in the United Arab Emirates as African champions,” said the former Nigerian player to supersport.com.

The Eaglets are leading Group B on three points following the goalless draw between Cote d’Ivoire and Congo in Marrakech, Morocco.

The Eaglets’ last group game will be against Congo on Saturday. The semifinalists of the biennial cadet championship will represent Africa at the world championship in UAE in the months of October and November.
