Chief Coach of Flying Eagles Paul Aigbogun says his team must learn how to finish off their chances if they are to make a great impact at the World Cup in Poland.


The U-20 side lost 1-2 to Saudi Arabia counterparts in a friendly in Vienna, Austria on Sunday and the former Enyimba international coach was not impressed with his side’s lack of composure in front of goal.


“We were unlucky to have lost against the Saudis. We created a lot of chances but failed to put them away. Our focus will shift to conversion of opportunities because we want to make an impact at the FIFA World Cup.

“There are a few other areas that myself and my assistants noticed and we will work hard at these when we get back to our training camp in Germany.”


The team will play further test games against German clubs TSG Hoffenheim,  Red Bull Leipzig and their sister club Red Bull Salzburg, before heading to the Polish city of Tychy where they play Qatar in their opening match of the competition on 24 May.
