U-20 AFCON; Nigeria coach Bosso eyes bronze medal against Tunisia

Nigeria coach Ladan Bosso has set his sights on clinching the bronze medal of the TotalEnergies U-20 Africa Cup of Nations Egypt 2023.

The Flying Eagles will face Tunisia in the third place match on Friday at the Cairo International Stadium at 16:00 local time (14:00 GMT).

Nigeria lost 1-0 in the semi-finals to The Gambia at the Cairo International Stadium on Monday night.
Steve Biko forward Adama Bojang scored the lone goal to send the Young Scorpions to their first ever TotalEnergies U-20 AFCON final.

“It was unfortunate we lost the semifinals and now we will play the third place match,” Bosso told journalists at his pre-match press conference.

“The third place is as good as the final. We believe if we get it right we will take something home and I believe we can put smiles on the faces of football loving Nigerians.

“We lost to The Gambia not that they were better than us because we should have sealed that game in the beginning. 

“Nevertheless the way we prepared for the Gambian team is the same way we will prepare for Tunisia with some adjustments to get the win,” he added.

Abel Ogwuche was named the Man of the Match in the quarter-final victory over Uganda in Ismailia and he reiterated that the Flying Eagles will be playing to secure a podium finish.

“We are a hundred percent prepared to take something back to Nigeria. We lost the last game but in football there can only be three outcomes,” Abel said.

“Tomorrow we will be coming out to win the game and take something back home and put a smile to our fans back home.

“This tournament is a great opportunity for us the players to be seen and showcase our talent and we will do our best.”
