Golden Eaglets coach, Emmanuel Amuneke, has stated that his players are not fazed about meeting Mexico in the semi-final of the U-17 World Cup.
In UAE 2013, the Eaglets defeated Mexico 6-1 in the group stage and 3-0 in the final to claim their fourth U-17 world title.
Both teams will square off in Thursday’s last four clash after Mexico beat Ecuador 2-0 in the quarter-final.
Amuneke told nff.com that the game will be a thrilling encounter following Mexico’s performance so far in the competition.
“We welcome the challenge of meeting Mexico again because we are more or less old foes.
“I think it is going to be an interesting game because the Mexicans have shown in this tournament that they are a very solid side but we will continue to work towards this important semi final game.”
