Manu Garba talks up Eaglets ahead of Niger tie

Golden Eaglets Head coach, Manu Garba has enjoined his youngsters to take a cue from the U23 team’s inspiring 5-4 win over Japan in their opening Group B match at the Men’s Olympic Football Tournament Rio 2016 in the early hours of Friday.

The Golden Eaglets team, who most of the players reportedly failed an MRI scan, will play Niger on Saturday in Abuja in a CAF U17 Championship qualifier.

The 2013 FIFA World Cup-winning coach during the team’s last training session on Friday’s morning, tasked the lads to imbibe the never-say-die Nigerian spirit when they take on the Junior Menas on Saturday.

“I want to announce to you that our U-23 team early this morning beat Japan 5-4 and this should also inspire us when we play against Niger on Saturday; the U-23 team showed good spirit and won despite arriving Brazil shortly before the match; we must ensure that we win our own game here with as many goals as possible on Saturday.”
