Nigeria’s Golden Eaglets will this afternoon open their U-17 African Cup of Nations account as they take on hosts Tanzania in the tournament’s opening game this afternoon.
The chief coach of the Golden Eaglets, Manu Garba who admitted that his side may face pressure associated with opening games, said his boys would hold their heads high in the teams return to the tournament after missing the 2017 edition even as the 2015 FIFA U-17 World Cup champions.
He added that the team is ready and should be able to handle the title-seeking Tanzanians inspired by former Golden Eaglets coach Emmanuel Amuneke.
The Golden Eaglets would face Angola and Uganda next in group A.
