The Head Coach of the Golden Eaglets of Nigeria, Fatai Amoo, has said the team is determined ahead of the encounter against Ivory Coast in the West African Football Union (WAFU B) U-17 tournament.

The Eaglets have already landed in Lome, Togo, where the tournament is scheduled to kick off today and end on January 20, 2021.

The 37-man Nigerian contingent was led by the chief technical officer of the Nigeria Football Federation, Garba Lawal.

Shortly after their training, Amoo revealed that the players are focused to win the game against the Ivorians on Wednesday.

“We wanted the players to shake off the travel stress and get their bodies physically conditioned for the task ahead against Ivory Coast and the focus is to win the game,” he told the website of the Nigerian Football Federation.

“We want Nigerians here in Togo and back home to support the team. The players are determined, very eager to learn and we hope for a favourable result against Ivory Coast on Wednesday,” he said.
