Former International and Coach, Emmanuel Amuneke has applauded the Golden Eaglets at the on-going FIFA Under-17 World Cup in Brazil and charged the team to be clinical in front of the goal as the competition enters the decisive knockout stages.
He Explained that the Eaglets after securing a heart thumping 4-2 and 3-2 wins against Hungary and Ecuador to secure their place in the Round of 16, their inability in front of the goal cost them dear in their 2-1 loss to Australia.
Amuneke warned the Eaglets to be wary of stiffer challenges starting from tomorrow’s second round match at Estádio Olímpico Goiania against any other team. He added that team must put behind them their performances in the preliminary round and gird their loins henceforth since mit’s winner-take-all from the Round of 16.
As Group-B leaders, the Golden Eaglets are to face the best third-placed team from Groups A, C or D but there is likelihood that there opponent would be determined by drawing of lot at the conclusion of all the group matches.
