Golden Eaglets coach, Emmanuel Amuneke has predicted that the Eaglets would sting Sweden with goals when they play their second match in the FIFA U-17 World Cup today.
The Eaglets have sent out warning signals with their 6-1 humiliation of defending Champions, Mexico in their first match on Saturday.
“We already have a strategy in place for. Sweden and we are ready for whatever antics they would throw at us, “said Amuneke, holder of UEFA Pro-License.
”We watched their game against Iraq and we already know how they deploy their players which are typical of Europeans and Scandinavian teams.”
Reminded of that famous battle of Toulouse when a Scandinavian side,Denmark against all expectations, comprehensively demolished the Super
Eagles at the France’98 World Cup, Amuneke shrugged off the threats of the Swedes, insisting that all hands are on deck.
”We would be business-like against Sweden,” he assured.”We would be frontal in our attack because they would naturally want to defend and wait for counter attacks.”
Pressed for the likely loopholes to explore against Sweden, Amuneke said matter of factly: “We would deal with that but the most important thing is that we respect our opponents.
