Super Eagles of Nigeria Head Coach José Peseiro has hailed Nigeria’s U20 men’s football team, the Flying Eagles, after recording victories in their recent friendly outings in preparation for the U20 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) tournament in Egypt next month.

Peseiro was present at the NFF/FIFA Goal Project pitch on Tuesday morning as the Flying Eagles mauled Capital City Football Academy 4-0 in a friendly match.

The warm-up game was another tune-up session to the game against Junior Chipolopolo of Zambia on Saturday at the Moshood Abiola Stadium in Abuja. Goals from Samson Lawal, Agbalaka Solomon,  Olamilekan Adams and Yahaya Ibrahim ensured the Flying Eagles extended their unbeaten run to sixteen games after a 4-2 victory.

A delighted Peseiro, while speaking with Head Coach of the Flying Eagles, Ladan Bosso said the team has a lot of  quality. Peseiro is convinced that the U20 boys will put up a performance in Egypt that would be good enough to qualify for the FIFA U20 World Cup finals, in Indonesia later this year.

The Portuguese tactician was at the match venue together with NFF Technical Director, Augustine Eguavoen and Super Eagles Team Administrator, Dayo Enebi Achor.
