Flying Eagles assistant coach Nduka Ugbade has predicted his team will win a seventh AYC title by winning all their matches in Senegal in March.
The Nigeria U20s are pitched in Group A alongside host country Senegal, Congo and Cote d’Ivoire.
They begin their campaign on March 8 against Senegal.
“We will win all our matches in Senegal on our way to winning the AYC in style,” said Ugbade, who has represented Nigeria at U17, U20 and full international levels.
“We have quality in the team and will continue to work hard until we have achieved our targets in Senegal before we set new targets for the World Cup in New Zealand.”
The semi-finalists of the 2015 AYC will qualify to represent Africa at the 2015 FIFA U20 World Cup in New Zealand beginning in May.
