Golden Eaglets left-back Charles Etim has revealed that they must play as a team in this evening’s match against Ecuador at the FIFA U17 World Cup.
The Manu Garba led team can make it to the next round of the tourney with a game to spare if they beat their South American opponents at the Estádio Olímpico, Goiânia.
”We pray for victory and we know that with God all things are possible,” Etim told the Nigerian Federation Media team ahead of the start of the clash.
”We need to defend and attack together, then press together. With that we can get a result”.
Meanwhile, coach Garba has named an unchanged line-up against Ecuador, meaning Sidos Academy attacking midfielder Akinkunmi Amoo and Ijebu FC’s Ibraheem Jabaar find themselves among the substitutes again, despite impressing off the bench in the opener against Hungary.
Nigeria Starting XI Vs Ecuador : Jinadu, Adeniyi, Ikenna, Ibrahim, Etim, Tijani, Ojediran, Opeyemi, Said, Ubani, Olusegun.
