“We are doing everything possible to make sure that we qualify for the African Youth Championship (AYC) in Zambia. Our obstacle at the moment is Sudan and actually we don’t know them.

He added that the players were in high spirits and would do their best to qualify for Zambia.

“Our boys are really in high spirit, they know what we want and also they know our philosophy and they are working hard with the technical crew. Also, we are putting all heads together and all hands are on deck to make sure we realise our dream.’’

According to the coach, the return leg of the match between Nigeria and Sudan will be played on July 23rd in Nigeria.

“We will play the return leg in Nigeria on the 23.”
