CAF U-20 Qualifier: No Hiding Place For Sudan – Amunike

Ahead of
Saturday’s 2017 Africa U-20 Nations Cup second leg qualifier at the
Teslim Balogun Stadium, Lagos, Flying Eagles coach, Emmanuel Amunike
says the team will take the Sudanese side to the cleaner in a bid to
book their ticket for Zambia.

The team who won the first leg
2-1 a fortnight ago in Omdurman are just a step away from qualifying for
the football showpiece as a draw or win would be enough for the team.

in Wednesday’s friendly match, the team were held 2-2 by Remo Star as
an own goal scored by Oche Salefu and a strike from Orji Okonkwo put the
Flying Eagles ahead before goals from Ekenne Awaze and Onu handed Remo
Stars a share of the spoils from the encounter that saw Samuel Chukwueze
miss a penalty kick.

However, Amunike who won the Africa
Cup of Nations in 1994 as player and led the Golden Eaglets to lift the
U-17 FIFA World Cup in Chile in 2015, told that there
would be no hiding place for Sudan on Saturday.

“The task of
qualify the Flying Eagles to the 2017 Africa U-20 Nations Cup is
gradually coming to an end considering the fact that the team is just a
step close to achieving it,” Amunike told

course we are aware that the Sudanese team won’t come to Nigeria to
count bridges because they are also targeting a ticket to play in

” The truth is, there will be no hiding place for them on
Saturday because my team are in good shape to do a double on them.” he
