The Head Coach of the Nigeria Golden Eaglets, Fatai Amoo is delighted with his team’s passage to the final of the ongoing 2021 WAFU U-17 championship in Lome, Togo.
The Eaglets pipped Burkina Faso 1 – 0 first semi-final match played on Thursday to book a place in the final.
Michael Emmanuel Papo’s strike in the 77th minutes was enough to help Nigeria’s Golden Eaglets secure final tickets and qualifications for the 2021 U17 Afcon.
Speaking to media after the game, Amoo said the Burkina Babes have good players that can win the game, but he gave his team kudos for playing to instructions.
The veteran gaffer also added that he decided to strengthen his defense line in order to keep the Coach Oumarou Eric Quattara led team at bay throughout the game.
“I knew they really have the players to win this game but we motivated our boys that you are improving, go there we believe you can do it and try all your possible best and they did that by winning the game, Amao said.
Nigeria will face Ivory Coast again in the final on Sunday after the meeting with the Ivorian at the group stage.
