The former Super Eagles winger has said that the U-17 team has what it takes to beat Guinea in the African qualifiers

Assistant coach of the Nigeria U-17 team, Emmanuel Amuneke has told Goal.com that he is optimistic that they will triumph over Guinea in the African qualification game that will be played on October 14 in Calabar.

Amunkeke's confidence is hinged on the fact that the team have been playing very well over the last two months and have properly blended.

"We are playing very well. We have blended very well and the boys are raring to go. But I am not underrating the team from Guinea," Amuneke told Goal.com.

"They must have a good team and that is why they qualified for this stage of the qualifiers.

"But let us see how it works out because I know the game will be explosive. I know my team. They are gradually maturing and proving their worth.

"We are not going to be complacent on that day because we need to win well. I am happy that we have been able to start the process of raising a new generation of players that will soon take over in a couple of years.

"By the time we finish the work on these boys, there will be a large pool of players for all the national teams. I am excited because our work will not be in vain.

"We will continue to do our best and pray that our best turn out to be the revolution that Nigerian football needs," Amuneke said.
