Nigeria’s U20 boys arrived in the city of Bielsko-Biala on Saturday morning for their second game of the FIFA U20 World Cup against the United States of America on Monday evening.
“We are here in Bielsko-Biala for business. It was great that we were able to convert the chances we had against Qatar and start our campaign on a brilliant note.
“Kudos to the boys. But the competition has just started and we must now take it one match at a time. Victory over USA will guarantee us a place in the knock-out stage and that is what we will go for,” Head Coach Paul Aigbogun told thenff.com.
Goals by Maxwell Effiom, Henry Offia, Ayotomiwa Dele-Bashiru, and Aliu Salawudeen earned Nigeria a comfortable win over Qatar in Tychy on Friday, and a win over USA (who lost 1-2 to Ukraine same day) on Monday would see the Flying Eagles assured of a place in the Round of 16.
The city of Bielsko-Biala will also host the Flying Eagles’ final match of the group phase against Ukraine on Thursday.
