WAFU Cup: Garba Blames Poor Preparation For Golden Eaglets Draw vs Burkina Faso

Golden Eaglets head coach Manu Garba says the team’s inadequate preparation played a key role in the draw against Burkina Faso.

The defending champions started their campaign at the 2024 WAFU B U-17 Championship with a 0-0 draw against Burkina Faso.

The Eaglets were in ascendancy for the majority of the game but couldn’t find a way past their opponent defence.

Garba stated that his team didn’t prepare well for the competition which reflected in the performance against the Burkinabes.

“The match against Burkina Faso was only the first international game by the team,” he said after the game.

“Burkina Faso were better prepared than us. They went on a playing tour, just like Ghana.

“But hopefully we will get better as the tournament progresses.”

The Golden Eaglets will face Niger Republic in their next game at the University Stadium on Sunday.
