South Africa Under-20 coach, Solly Luvhengo has told his Nigerian counterpart, John Obuh to prepare for the final fight as the two teams clash in the second leg qualifier of the African Youth Championships October 7 in Ilorin.
“The return leg in Nigeria will be very difficult, but we will fight. The Flying Eagles are a good team but we will fight them. We just need to score in Nigeria and the pressure will be back on Nigeria. That is our target,” he said
Obuh admitted that the match will not be an easy one, but said that his team was equal to the task.
“It won’t be an easy game in Ilorin (Nigeria) against a good and fast South African team, but we will qualify.
“These days, there isn’t such a thing as home advantage because a good team can play anywhere and win. Football has changed and so we can’t relax to ensure we finish off the job in Ilorin,” he said.
Coach Obuh expressed his desire to defend the title he won 2011 in South Africa. A win for him will see him land in the eight-nation AYC in Algeria in March.
