Brazilian Coach Urges Manu Garba To Work On Eaglets’ Poor Finishing


Following his side’s victory over the Golden Eaglets of Nigeria in friendly game, Sao Paulo youth team coach Marcos Vizolli has advised the Manu Garba’s men to work on their composure in front of goal.

The five time U-17 World Champions suffered a 2-1 defeat in the hand of the Brazilian side on Monday, as they stepped up preparation towards coming FIFA U-17 World Cup in Brazil.


The Many Garba’s team created several chances but had only a penalty converted by Olakunle Olusegun in the 70th minute to show for their efforts, however Sao Paulo’s Marcos Vizolli has now charged the Manu Garba’s led technical crew to work on the team’s inability to put chances away.



”It was a really good game, Nigeria tried to dominate the midfield, they tried to score but they couldn’t, they missed four times in the first half,”

”In the second half, Nigeria was better, they dominated much better the game and tried to work a lot with the wingers but they couldn’t score another goal.

”They conceded in the second half because the midfield lost the ball. The result is not so important, the importance is the level and the intensity of the game which will prepare them for the World Cup.”


The Golden Eaglets will meet South Korea in another friendly game on Wednesday, October 16.
