thumbnail Hello,

The visitors have said that they will not be daunted by the reputation of the Nigerian team in Sunday's youth qualifier

The Guinean U-17 national team coach has promised to launch forays of attacks on the Golden Eaglets despite playing away from home in the second round first leg of the Africa U-17 qualifier slated for Calabar today. 

The coach in a chat with SportingLife shortly after their training session said despite playing at the turf of the Nigerians he has told his players to go on mass attack to see if they would get some goals to assist their progression to the next round at the expense of the Eaglets.

He stressed that they came to Nigeria with players who are not above the age limit owing to the fact that they believe that the U-17 team should be a breeding ground to get those that will form the bedrock of the senior national team in the future.

"We are in Nigeria to attack your team. We are not going to be deterred by the fact that we are the visitors. We will try to see if we can get some goals that will aid us in the deciding leg in Conakry.

"We are not afraid playing an attacking game because we are not after winning at all cost. We want to develop our youths and prepare ahead for the future," the coach who spoke through an interpreter affirmed.
