–Ex National U20 warns team against complacency

Former Flying Eagles , John Obuh has declared that South American giants, Brazil, are not invincible, stressing that if Manu Garba’ boys put behind whatever they have achieved right from U-17 level, they can shock the Samba Boys in New Zealand.

“I don’t believe in statistics, the that Nigeria has not beaten Brazil at competitive U-20 level before does not scare me at all”, starts the former Golden Eaglets handler.

“I remember that in 2013 during the Touloun Tournament in France, we beat them 2-1 so why can’t the Flying Eagles do same this around.

“I have never hidden my love and admiration for this Flying Eagles team, they have the potential, they have the quality and given the technical input the coaches, the () Federation and Nigerians, I’m confident they soar high in New Zealand”, Obuh is Gabros FC adviser said.

Nigeria has not won a game or scored against Brazil at the U-20 level since 1983, conceding nine goals in four meetings that includes a scoreless draw in the Netherlands in 2005.

Obuh reckons that if the Flying Eagles can put heads down and put behind achievements in the U-17 and U-20 levels since 2013, they go far in the New Zealand showpiece.

“This team has jelled well, right from the Golden Eaglets level when they won the FIFA U-17 and the U-20 level when they won the AYC trophy.

“But if they can put those records behind and avoid being complacent, I see them going far in the championship”, he stressed.

Asked at what stage the team can reach in the 2015 FIFA U-20 in New Zealand, Obuh said what is important is for the team to qualify from group.

“After that, they can take it from there”, the former Enugu Rangers gaffer said.
