Nwosu calls for caution against Ghana

Former Nigerian captain and winger, Henry Nwosu, has called for caution as Flying Eagles confront Ghana’s Black Satellites.

Flying Eagles will engage the Ghanaian opposite in the semifinals of the ongoing Orange African Under-20 Championship in Senegal on Wednesday at the Leopold Sedar Senghor Stadium, Dakar.

Nwosu who acknowledged the age long rivalry between both countries insisted that Flying Eagles must avoid complacency to win the expected difficult clash against Ghana.

“The AYC semis clash between Nigeria and Ghana is certain to be tough as both countries know each other inside out, the rivalry is as old as both countries so I don’t expect anything other than 100% concentration and focus in the game.

“I don’t expect complacency on the part of Flying Eagles rather they must come to the party with every amount of seriousness.

“Ghana usually build their attack slowly from the back so we must be very good to catch them on a counter.

“Of course, Flying Eagles must have picked one or two lessons from the Golden Eaglets in the out gone African Under-17 Championship in Niger.

“Flying Eagles are a good side with quality players, I expect them to overrun the Ghanaians but it won’t be easy.

“I think the watchword is absolute caution and 100% concentration victory will be assured,” said the former Golden Eaglets and Gateway United head coach to

Both countries have secured their passage to the upcoming Fifa Under-20 World Cup in New Zealand together with hosts, Senegal and Mali.
