The Head Coach of Nigeria's U-20 team Ladan Bosso has disclosed the target for his side at the ongoing U-20 Nations Cup in Egypt.

The young Eagles are a win away from qualifying for the FIFA World Cup in Indonesia as they prepare to take on Uganda in their next encounter.

The Flying Eagles gaffer has revealed that the minimum target for his charges is to qualify for the 2023 U-20 FIFA World Cup.

“We all know that Nigeria has qualified to the quarter-final stage and knowing fully that we have an objective of coming out of this place and the least task ahead of us is to pick one of the slots to the FIFA U-20 World Cup.

“We’re almost there but it is not yet sealed. We believe and hope that at the end of the regulation time tomorrow we should be celebrating.”

The former El-Kanemi Warriors coach also advised his team to guard against complacency.

“The Ugandan team are equally qualified and they’re our next opponents and we cannot underrate any team,” Bosso said as quoted by CAFonline.

Nigeria will lock horns with Uganda in the quarterfinals at the Suez Canal Stadium, Ismailia at 6 pm on Thursday, March 2.
