WAFU B U17 Championship: Manu Insists Eaglets Will Go for Three Points Against Togo

Posted : 22 May 2024

Coach Manu Garba has reiterated that Nigeria’s U17 boys will go for a win in Wednesday’s Group B final encounter in Accra, even though a draw will be good enough to see the five-time world champions through to the semi-finals.


“We are not here to be drawing matches. I am not happy that we drew our first match against Burkina Faso. We should have scored a number of goals, especially towards the end, but we cannot cry over spilt milk.


“We got the three points against Niger Republic, and we have to maintain the winning mentality. We cannot afford to gamble; a win is what we are going for. Even though they lost their first two matches, we cannot afford to underestimate the Togolese. They scored two goals against Niger Republic, even though they eventually lost, so they are not a team to be taken for granted.”


Cup holders Golden Eaglets will finish top of the pile if they win against the Togolese at the Accra Sports Stadium and fellow group leaders Burkina Faso fail to defeat Niger Republic at the University of Accra Stadium in games that will be played simultaneously.


Victory for Nigeria, and a draw or defeat for the Burkinabes, will mean the Eaglets avoid the in-form Black Starlets of Ghana, who are expected to top Group A, in the last-four confrontations.
