Fidelis Ilechukwu, coach of MFM FC of Lagos, on Friday expressed confidence in the ability of the Flying Eagles to get to the quarter finals of the ongoing FIFA U-20 world cup in Poland.
Ilechukwu told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) that none of the teams in the Flying Eagles Group had the quality to stop Nigeria.
He described the Paul Aigbogu tutored boys as truly “flying”, adding that they displayed quality and impressive game over Qatar.
“With what I saw today, quarter finals is nonnegotiable, I don’t think any team in that Group D will stop these boys,” Ilechukwu said.
The coach, who congratulated the team, urged them to continue with such quality pattern of play in order to lift the trophy for the first time.
According to him, what they need to do now is to sustain this form which certainly will give them victory over Ukraine and U.S.
