Nigeria’s coach John Obuh is confident of qualifying for the World Cup by scaling the group stage of the 2013 African Youth Championship in Algeria.

The Flying Eagles will battle Mali, Gabon and DR Congo in the tournament and Obuh believes that the composition of his team points to the fact that Nigeria will have a wonderful outing due to his side’s quality.

“All the teams that will be coming for the tournament are good because all of us have to scale past some countries before reaching this stage.

“Every country have equal opportunity to win the competition but we have a quality team that should be able to hold their own against all other teams.

Some of my players are familiar with the tournament and I know this will give us some edge.

The competition holds from March 16-30 in Rabat and Casablanca.
