Coach Paul Aigbogun has also tried to know more about the Qataris, but at the same time has insisted the main focus will be preparing his own team.

Qatar qualified for their fourth U20 World Cup after they reached the semi-final of the AFC U19 Championship in February 2017.

Both Qatar and the Flying Eagles are staying at the same hotel and it will be the first time both teams are meeting at this competition.
