The Nigeria Golden Eaglets seek their third continental glory at the ongoing U-17 Africa Cup Of Nations 2019 in Tanzania.
A win for the Nigeria team automatically gets them the World Cup ticket to the FIFA U-17 World cup that will be hosted by Brazil.
The Nigeria team won their first match against the host Tanzania 5-4.
Either Eaglets or Angola could book their place in the semi-final with a win today as the young Angola team defeated Uganda 1-0 in their first match.
However, Concise News reported that the assistant coach of the Golden Eaglets is optimistic his team will win today and book their place at the FIFA World Cup.
He said: “We understand that we need to win this game to qualify not only to the semifinal but also to the FIFA U-17 World Cup. It is a very important match for us and for our opponents too. To be honest this will be an open game for both teams.
“Angola is a good team. They play well and they are good on the offensive. We know that our defence made several mistakes in the opening fixture against Tanzania which saw us concede four goals, but we are working on to improve.
“This is a youth tournament so sometimes the boys want to express themselves and tactical discipline is low but we will play well.”
