Ladan Bosso Eyes U20 AFCON title


With one objective now out of the way, the Nigeria U20 MNT will now aim to win the African championship, head Coach Ladan Bosso has stated.

The Flying Eagles defeated Uganda to grab a ticket to not only the semi-final of the U20 Africa Cup of Nations but also picked up one of four tickets to the FIFA under-20 world cup in The Philippines later this year.

Now that the initial goal of getting a ticket for the World Cup is secured, Ladan Bosso has declared full concentration on winning the golden prize at the ongoing CAF U20 AFCON.

“The boys have maintained that they are out for business, now that we have picked the World Cup ticket, the next thing is to ensure that we qualify for the final and hopefully we can go back home to Nigeria with the trophy,” Bosso said after the game.

On March 6, Nigeria will face Gambia in the semi-final at the Cairo International Stadium in Cairo.

Gambia beat recorded the biggest result in this edition of the competition, beating South Sudan 5-0 in their quarter-final match.
