U20 AFCON: Ladan Bosso Confident Nigeria can Beat Gambia


Ladan Bosso, head coach of the Nigeria U20 MNT, has stated that the team’s goal is to win an 8th U20 Africa Cup of Nations championship.

Nigeria are in the semi-final at the ongoing U20 AFCON and will battle Gambia for a place in the final, since 2015.

However, Gambia would prove to be a difficult test; the small West African nation are regarded as one of the best teams in the competition.

Gambia’s 5-0 win against South Sudan in their quarter-final meeting is the biggest result in the competition – so far – and they’re on a four-game winning streak.

The impressive form of the Gambians would not deter Ladan Bosso, though, as the Nigerian coach expressed optimism for a good outing at the Cairo International Stadium.

“The most important thing for us in the tournament is that we qualified for the World Cup. Now we will fight to win the title,” Bosso was quoted by CAFonline.
