Head Coach Paul Aigbogun has stated that three points from their FIFA U20 World Cup opener against Qatar in Tychy next week Friday would greatly boost confidence in approaching the remaining games of the group phase.
“Our target is to get those three points in our first game and set off on a run. It would be a big booster. Our gameplan is to get off on a good footing at the World Cup and then carry on from there.
“The Nigeria Football Federation has done very well to camp the team in an exquisite facility ahead of the FIFA World Cup. We can only repay their support and effort, and the confidence of the people of Nigeria, with a good outing in Poland.”
Seven –time African champions Nigeria will open their FIFA U20 World Cup against Qatar on Friday, with matches against USA and Ukraine to follow in Group D.
Nigeria will fly out of Germany to Poland on 19th May for this year’s FIFA U20 World Cup finals.
The Flying Eagles are in Group D of the competition alongside Qatar, the United States and Ukraine.
