Flying Eagles coach, Paul Aigbogun says he’s confident in his squad ability to win next month’s U20 Afcon billed for Niger Republic in February.
The former Enyimba international coach states that his boys has what it takes to deliver the title to Nigeria and will leave no stone unturned in order to achieve the aim.
The Flying Eagles are in Group A with South Africa, Burundi and hosts Niger Republic and will look to qualify from group and secure a World Cup slot in the process.
“It is a tournament we are going to approach with all seriousness,” Aigbogun told NFF media.
“This team has a huge burden on it because of the previous performances of Nigeria at U20 level.
“Nigeria have won the competition seven times and anything less than coming home with the trophy would always be seen as failure.
“Playing in the Wafu Cup tournament in Togo gave my players sneak preview of what things would look like in Niger Republic, and we learnt a lot from the defeat to Senegal in the final match.”
