Golden Eaglets coach Manu Garba has lamented the slim 1-0 win over Niger in a CAF U17 Championship qualifier, saying his side wasted lots of chances.
A second minute goal by Usman Musa was all that separated the sides in Abuja on Saturday.
“It was a difficult game but we thank God we won and by the grace of God, we are going to win in Niger,” Garba said afterwards.
“Our expectations were high after we scored an early goal but we wasted a lot of chances thereafter.”
Nigeria will travel for the return leg in Niamey in a fortnight and Manu says all errors will be corrected.
“We have noticed our errors and we will correct them before the second leg; we just want Nigerians to be prayerful for these boys, we are going to qualify,” he noted.
