EX-INTERNATIONAL, Victor Ikpeba, the former Prince of Monaco has tipped the Flying Eagles to excel in Egypt during the World Youth Championship. Ikpeba said that the success of the Flying Eagles would not be surprising because of their Coach Samson Siasia.


“Siasia is a good coach who takes risks. He is sound, hard-working and gives his best in every assignment. He knows the job and will come out triumphant from the land of the Pharaohs”, Ikpeba said.

Siasia himself speaking from Qatar said that he was not promising Nigerians anything. “I don’t want to make promises. We are still working and working very hard. I need the prayers and good wishes of Nigerians to excel”, he said.

NFF President, Sani Lulu Abdullahi also said that his federation was giving their best to ensure that the Flying Eagles emulate the Beach Eagles in winning.

“They are doing well and we have arranged a four-nation tourney in Egypt for them before the tournament. We have cancelled the training camp in Spain because they are in the same group with Spain in the World Cup in Egypt. It is like going to the Lions’ den. We want the best for them”, Lulu still savouring the victory of the Beach Eagles in South Africa said.
