Obuh Calls On Golden Eaglets To Decide Fate At U-17 AFCON

Obuh Calls On Golden Eaglets To Decide Fate At U-17 AFCON

Former Nigeria Under-17 coach John Obuh has called on the Golden Eaglets to take their destiny into their own hands ahead of their crunch clash with South Africa on Saturday.

The Eaglets suffered a 1-0 defeat against Morocco in their second Group B game on Wednesday to record their first loss at the 2023 U-17 AFCON.

This put their qualification into the last eight on hold as the Eaglets now have to beat South Africa to advance to the next round.

“So at this moment the players are the ones to decide their fate," said Obuh, who led the Golden Eaglets to a second-place finish at the 2009 FIFA U-17 World Cup. 

"Once they make any mistake and they are sent back home the exposure for them will not be there anymore and their dreams will be shattered.

“At this particular time, the players really have to talk to themselves in support of what the coach must have told them."
