The Flying Eagle of Nigeria has expressed the belief that they can overpower the young Teranga Lions of Senegal as both African representatives Senegal clash tonight in the second round of FIFA U20 World Cup in Poland.
Senegal which came second at the AFCON under 20 tournament in the Niger Republic has a clean sheet so far in the tournament after topping their group with 7 points at the expense of the host nation while Nigeria finished fourth at the African Mundial and squeezed through to the second round as one of the best four third-place finishers.
With the coach Paul Aigbogun having almost a full-strength squad to choose from, tall defender Valentine Ozornwafor would be back at the heart of defence to partner Aliu Salawudeen.
Midfielder Jamil Muhammad, who got injured in the loss to USA on Monday last week is however out of the tournament proper, giving an opportunity for Ayotomiwa Dele-Bashiru to likely eturn to link up with Kingsley Michael in midfield
Others players, including the goalscorers from the 4-0 victory over Qatar in the opening game; Maxwell Effiom, Ikouwem Utin, Dele-Bashiru and Aliu Salawudeen– as well as striker Tijani Muhammed who equalised for the team after losing his first spot-kick against Ukraine on Thursday in Bielsko-Biala, are all fit for the clash.
The lads who arrived Lodz on Saturday, after an inspection of the Stadion Widzewa, before settling down for training trained on Sunday evening.
Kick off a:7.30pm Nigeria time.
Venue: Stadion Widzewa
Date: June 3, 2019
