One of Nigeria league’s most-wanted youngest coaches, Fatai Osho says the Golden Eaglets of Nigeria must shun complacency if they hope to get past Mexico to lift the 2013 FIFA U-17 World Cup in United Arab Emirate, UAE.
The Kogi United head coach in a chat with Sports Writers insisted that the Manu Garba led Nigeria U-17 national team must forget the 6-1 opening thrashed handed the Central Americans.
With Nigeria one match away from lifting their fourth U-17 World Cup trophies, Osho stated that the team must remain focused and determined, urging them to sustain the good fighting spirit to the end.
“I’m happy with their performance, I really commended their playing technique which is capable of overwhelming any team – they must shun complacency and forget about the 6-1 victory in the first group matches.”
The former Remo Stars gaffer while commending the members of the team’s technical crew featuring Manu Garba, Emmanuel Amuneke and Nduka Ugbade admitted that this was the youngest and best U-17 players Nigeria has paraded in over a decade.
He equally heaped praises on the role of the Nigeria Football Federation in provision an enabling environment for the players and officials, stressing that the much time for camping availed the coaches great opportunity to assemble some of the best legs to execute
“The technical crew have done a great job assembling some of the best legs in the country – it obvious that many talents abound in the country – they had a good preparatory programme, this I must give kudos to the NFF and Cross Rivers state government for their role in
getting the team well-prepared.”
