Flying Eagles coach John Obuh has said as defending champions, the Flying Eagles will not underrate any team at the 2013 African Youth Championship in Algeria.
Obuh made this declaration on Thursday morning when the Flying Eagles touched down at the Ahmed Ben Bella international Airport in Oran.
“All the teams who qualified to feature in this competition must be good to reach this stage and so we will not underrate any of them,” said Obuh, who led Nigeria to a sixth AYC conquest two years ago in South Africa.
“What’s most important for us now would be our opening match on Sunday against Mali. You have a great advantage if you win your first match and that is what we wish to do,” the sweat merchant added.
The Nigeria U20s are booked into the three-star Eden Airport Hotel, which is a walk away from the airport
