Head coach of the Nigeria’s U-17 team, Emmanuel Amuneke, has confirmed that there are no injury concerns in the squad, ahead of Thursday’s semi-final match against Mexico.
The Golden Eaglets are still on course to retain the trophy they won two years ago in UAE and Amuneke is confident his boys will deliver.
“I’ve always believed that our journey in this championship lies in the hand of God Almighty,” Amuneke told CompleteSports.
“It’s God that has taken us this far and we believe He can still do more for us especially with Nigerians standing behind us with prayers.
“It’s our determination to bring something worth celebrating for Nigerians at the end of the championship and the players are committed to doing just that.”
Amuneke also called for focus, as the tournament enters its crucial stages and warned that the Mexicans are no pushovers.
“We’re at a very crucial stage of the competition which calls for focus,” he added.
“Mexico is a strong side, we already know that a tough game lies ahead of us.
“The good thing is that all the players are looking forward to the game.
“Most importantly, we don’t have any injury concerns in the team, all the players are available for the match.
“There could be minor knocks and shocks which are part of the game but the good thing is that none is enough to rule any of the players out of the game against Mexico”, he hinted.
