2023 African Games: Bosso confident of Flying Eagles reaching semi-finals


The Head Coach of Nigeria’s U-20 male football team, the Flying Eagles, Ladan Bosso, has expressed confidence in his team’s ability to qualify for the semi-finals despite a slow start at the 2023 African Games in taking place in Ghana.

The Flying Eagles secured a narrow 1-0 win over South Sudan at the Accra Sports Stadium after Sadiq Muhammed scored from the penalty spot to earn Nigeria their first victory at the 13th African Games.

The 56-year-old tactician acknowledged the challenge his side faced, emphasising the difficulty of the game, and praised his boys for their perseverance.

“It was a hard-fought victory and I thank God that we got the three points we needed. Our preparation was not solid because we had a limited time to prepare for the games,” Bosso said, as reported by Daily Post.

The Flying Eagles will face Senegal in their final group game, with a draw enough to secure a spot in the semi-finals.
