Nigeria’s Flying Eagles forward Chidera Ezeh says the team is set out to avenge their 2013 defeat to Cote d’Ivoire in the final of CAF U17 Championship in Marrakech.
Both sides squared up twice in Morocco, in the group stage and all the way to the final, the Ivorians won on both occassion.
Meanwhile, both sides have seen the transition of the U17s to the U20s and Ezeh who was part of that 2013 team has vowed the Flying Eagles are out to win every game and a victory over Cote d’Ivoire will be satisfying.
” We are happy to have qualified for the FIFA U-20 World Cup. The job is not done yet. Our aim is to win all our matches at the tournament. Against Cote d’Ivoire, we will be looking for a win as well. They beat us in the final of the Africa U-17 Championship in Morocco in 2013 and we want to avenge that loss.”
Chidera Ezeh was subbed out for Olorunleke Ojo after the sending off of Joshua Enaholo in the 32nd minute.
