Angola head coach Pedro Dos Santos has declared the Golden Eaglets of Nigeria’s attack as dangerous as the two teams clash in the second group game of the on-going CAF U-17 African Cup of Nations.
Dos Santos said the Golden Eaglets underlined how lethal their attack was after the five-time world champions netted five times from 31 attempts on goal in their opening fixture against Tanzania but he believes they can still shock the more illustrious opponents.
”This is a big opportunity for us because if we win this game, we will have a good chance of going to the FIFA U-17 World Cup in Brazil,” he told reporters.
”The confidence and motivation level of my players has soared after beating Uganda in the opening match.
”We watched Nigeria against Tanzania, and they are a good team especially in attack. But we will map out a strategy to contain them and possibly win.”
His player Afonso Binga added: ”We are confident of victory against Nigeria. They are a strong team but we are ready to take them on.
”We are not scared by the fact that they scored five past Tanzania, it happens in football. We are a different team and we have prepared well.”
