The Golden Eaglets of Nigeria will take on Australia for a spot in the quarter finals in the on-going FIFA U-17 World Cup in Chile.

Coach Emmanuel Amuneke is not taking for granted the seemingly easy fixture that will take place in the wee hours of Thursday morning (Nigerian Time) he says, he expects the boys to give their best and come out victorious.

“We have to keep working hard and prepare our players physically and psychologically for the match against Australia especially after losing our last group match to Croatia. We have to let the players realize that the stage we are in now is crucial and it needs high level of concentration from them. We would evaluate our players and see their state of mind but hopefully, all of them would be ready to play on Wednesday,” Amuneke avers.

Statistics show that the Eaglets are the favourites having won all five of the teams’ previous meetings.
