Amuneke Has It In Mind Flying Eagles Have To Play SIX More Games.

Flying Eagles coach Emmanuel Amuneke has remained modest though his team is well placed to qualify for the third round of the Africa U20 Cup of Nations qualifiers after beating Burundi 1-0 in Bujumbura on Saturday.

The former Barcelona star has it in mind that the Nigeria U20s will have to play six more games, including two potential qualifiers against Sudan, before advancing to the 2017 Fifa Under 20 World Cup in South Korea.

“Success has many friends he said, today we are happy because we have brought smiles to the faces of Nigerians but as I have always emphasized, the journey is still very long and we must take each game as they come,” Amuneke said.

“We are done with the first leg, we must return to work immediately ahead of the return leg.

“It is only when we have gone past that hurdle that we can breath a sigh of relief but even then, we still have Sudan to play in July to guarantee a spot at the CAF U-20 Nations cup in Zambia.”

The Nigeria U20s delegation returned to the country on Monday and will begin training for the second leg against the Swallows on Tuesday evening, before their trip to Calabar the following day.
