Flying Eagles assistant coach, Abdul Maikaba, has said he is worried about his team’s defence, ahead of the first leg of their 2019 Africa Under-20 cup of nations qualifiers against Guinea Bissau.
Maikaba said he is worried that the team is conceding goals, adding that, it is important they keep a clean-sheet, especially in away matches.
Speaking in Abuja, the coach warned the players not to be complacent, even if they are winning 4-0, and 5-0.
Maikaba, however said he is confident that the team will be ready to take on the rest of Africa, if they continue to improve at the present rate.
The Flying Eagles failed to qualify for the last Africa Under-20 cup of nations under Coach Emmanuel Amunike, after losing on away goals to Sudan.
The team will depart the country today for Guinea Bissau, where they will take on their Guinea Bissau counterparts in the first leg of a 2019 Africa Under-20 cup of nations second round qualifying fixture on Saturday.
Team administrator, Aliyu Lawal Ibrahim, said that a contingent including 20 players and team officials led by Coach Paul Aigbogun will arrive in Bissau on Wednesday evening..
