U-20 AFCON Bosso okays tough draw for Flying Eagles. Ladan Bosso, the head coach of the Flying Eagles, has maintained his composure despite his team receiving a difficult draw for the 2023 Africa U-20 Cup of Nations.
In Group A, the seven-time champions will compete against the hosts Egypt, Mozambique, and Senegal.
Senegal has a strong record at this level, whereas Egypt has won the championship four times previously.
The popularity of Mozambican football has recently increased, and they will undoubtedly be challenging to beat.
The top teams on the continent have nothing to fear, according to Bosso.
The team is a typical team. After the draw was conducted on Friday, Bosso remarked, “Every team that qualifies for the U20 Africa Cup of Nations is confident of qualifying for the World Cup.
“So, whether we are in a difficult group or not, you must play against the top teams in the Africa Cup of Nations if you want to qualify for the World Cup.
“We’ll approach it gradually. We must respect each member of our group and will strive to do so; we will not prioritize any one nation over another.
“This is Nigeria’s squad, not Bosso’s team. As a result, now that the drawings have been done, I ask that everyone pray for the squad.
On Monday, February 20, the Flying Eagles will face Senegal at the Cairo International Stadium to kick off the competition.
Nigeria’s latest U-20 AFCON victory came in 2015.
