Former skipper of Enyimba International FC, Tony Alegbe, is optimistic that Flying Eagles can book a passage to the quarterfinals of the FIFA U-20 World Cup in Argentina if they remain brave and resolute against the host country on Wednesday.
Alegbe who captained Enyimba to their first league title in 2001 said that the Flying Eagles have what it takes to beat Argentina if they defend well and do not concede cheap goals like they did against the Dominican Republic and Brazil in the group stage of the World Cup.
“The Flying Eagles, aside from raising their game must be brave and must take the few chances they will create. They must not do the mistake of taking the battle to them as they did against Brazil. The Flying Eagles must defend collectively and hope to catch the host on counter-attack and set-pieces.
