As the FIFA U20 World Cup draws ever closer, Flying Eagles skipper Musa Muhammed has commented on their readiness for the competition which kicks off on the 30th of May in New Zealand.
The 18-year-old has made Nigeria’s final 21-man squad for the competition and has been featuring in the team’s friendly games in Germany, where they have scored 10 goals and conceded just two in the two matches played so far.
Captain Muhammed says he and his teammates are ready to take on the world.
“We are ready to take on the world,” he told SL10.ng.
“The friendly matches we have played have really helped us. Starting with the Super 6, and the games we have played here and I will say we now have a compact side.
“This is not about being boastful but I believe we are ready to take on the world because we have had such a good preparation for the competition and we are ready to go,” he stated further.
The Nigerian U20’s have been impressive in the two friendly games they have played in Germany, where they are camped before heading to New Zealand.
They will play their third and final friendly match against the U23’s of Freiburg tomorrow, before leaving for the U20 World Cup.
