Nigeria’s Flying Eagles recently won their first Group D match against the Dominican Republic, and now they are gearing up to take on Italy in their next game. The team’s coach, Ladan Boss, has emphasized that they will focus on correcting their mistakes from the previous game before facing Italy.
According to reports from Soccernet.ng, the Flying Eagles had numerous opportunities to score against the U-20 World Cup rookies but were unable to convert them. Dominican Republic took the lead from a penalty kick, but Nigeria eventually capitalized on a costly mistake by the opposing team to secure the victory.
Despite the win, Boss acknowledges that his team needs to improve their performance. In a post-match statement, he admitted that there were several missed scoring opportunities and mistakes that they need to work on in practice.
The Flying Eagles will face Italy on Wednesday, and a win could secure their spot in the next stage of the competition. Given Italy’s status as a fresh-faced team in the tournament, Nigeria will be looking to capitalize on any weaknesses and continue their winning streak.
Overall, it will be interesting to see how the Flying Eagles perform against Italy and whether they can build on their success from the previous game. With a talented squad and a focused coach, they certainly have the potential to go far in the competition.
