Golden Eaglets coach Emmanuel Amuneke is impressed with the way his side dismantled Henfield Football Club 6-1 in Wednesday’s friendly match at the NFF\FIFA Goal Project in Abuja.
Amuneke told completesportsnigeria.com after the game that the boys took their chances and showed hunger and desire to win from the blast of the referee’s whistle.
While admitting that the presence of the board members of the Nigeria Football Federation, Chief Felix Anyansi-Agwu, Alhaji Ahmad Kawu and Ahmed Fresh, and 2013 FIFA U-17 World Cup-winning coach, Manu Garba, may be a factor, Amuneke was quick to add that this is not the first time his side will score six in a warm-up game.
“They are ready but as kids you must keep reiterating what you have taught them in previous sessions,” a delighted Amuneke told completesportsnigeria.com.
“We have not won anything yet which is one fact I keep telling them. So we must try and improve on the tempo daily.”
He however played down the enviable record his side boasts in their warm up games.
“That we have won 49 games doesn’t mean we have arrived but the boys must be encouraged and we will keep improving in every areas necessary because what has kept the team strong is the competition,” he added.
