Head coach of Nigeria’s U-17 team, Manu Garba, has expressed confidence that his boys will defeat Niger Republic in the second leg, first round of their 2017 U-17 AFCON qualifier.
The Golden Eaglets won the first leg on Saturday 1-0, thanks to Tobi Alagbe’s goal.

Garba says he will work on some of the lapses from the game in Abuja to ensure they are victorious against the Menas in Niamey.

“It is a good result. Scoring many goals was our expectation. We created many chances but the boys could not convert them. This is football for you,” Garba said after the game.

“We have seen all the lapses, especially when it comes to scoring goals; we will work on them. By God’s grace, we are going to beat them in Niger. We are very confident that we will sail through by the special grace of God.

“The Niger Republic team will be under pressure on their home ground. I am assuring Nigerians that we are going to win in Niger. We cannot afford to go out of this competition at this stage.

“We have barely two weeks to correct all the mistakes we have noticed in this match. We are going to Sokoto and stay there for a week to acclimatize; from there we move to Niger.”
