Golden Eaglets coach Manu Garba has praised the character and fighting spirit of his team after they overcame logistical nightmare and going a goal behind to beat South Korea 4-2 in an U17 World Cup warm-up.
“The boys showed character after we had to travel for more than two hours to play the game against Korea and we also had to come from 2-1 down to win the game,” Manu saluted.
However, the coach said he will still need to work on his defence and how they deal with set pieces before the World Cup kicks off on October 26.
The Eaglets are due to play a final warm-up game against Japan on Sunday, but Manu said they may be forced to call off the game if they have to face another logistical nightmare.
