Flying Eagles forward Ibrahim Muhammed Beji has promised not to drop his guard when they take to the field on Tuesday evening in their second game at the ongoing WAFU Zone B U-20 qualifiers in Niger as they bid to reach the semifinals of the competition.
The Maikunkele FC striker grabbed the headlines on Sunday when he scored and produced a man-of-the-match performance for Nigeria in their 2-0 win over eternal rivals Ghana to take supremacy of group B.
Speaking ahead of Wednesday’s game against Burkina Faso, the Flying Eagles winger promised Nigerians that the team would not be complacent against their opponents as they bid to return smiles to the faces of football lovers back home.
“I am happy for the way we have started here in Niger, I am grateful for the opportunity to represent my country, and scoring the first goal of the tournament even makes it special for me and my family as well.
“On Wednesday we go again in our second match, we are not in the next round yet so we would approach the game like the first, we want to win and win well to please the fans back home in Nigeria.
Muhammad further went on to praise the Technical crew led by Ladan Bosso stating that the coaches have instilled discipline and the right tactics into every member of the team.
The Flying Eagles need just a point to top group B and advance to the semifinals having defeated the Black Satellite of Ghana 2-0 in their opening game last Sunday.
