‘We Will Work More On Our Defence’ –Flying Eagles Skipper, Adegbite

Flying Eagles skipper, Tosin Adegbite has promised that the team will work more on their defending after qualifying for the Total Energies Under-20 African Cup of Nations billed for next year.

Nigeria will meet Benin Republic in the final of the WAFU B U-20 Championship on Friday as both sides qualified for the 2023 U-20 AFCON following their semi-final victories in Niger on Tuesday.

The Flying Eagles sealed their place in the final after an energy sapping 2-1 extra-time victory over Cote d’Ivoire while Benin stunned Burkina Faso 2-1 at the Seyni Kountche Stadium in Niger.

Enyimba’s Adegbite who is also Nigeria’s captain and a defender was asked during the post-match press conference why they haven’t kept a clean-sheet since beating Ghana 2-0 in the first match.

“Football is a game of two teams and even if you are playing a handicapped team, they will have their own chances,” Adegbite said at the post-match press conference monitored by Complete Sports.

“As my coach said, we have enough time to prepare for the Nations Cup, so we will work on that. I cannot say the problem but it is something we are working in training and we will get it right.”
