On Wednesday, Nigeria’s U-20 male team, the Flying Eagles lost 1-0 to their Ghana counterpart in the last group game of the 2020 West Africa |Football Union Zone B in Benin Republic.
Although the team scored two disallowed goals during the match, coach of the side Ladan Bosso said the lads’ wastefulness in front of goal led to their defeat.
A superb free-kick close to the Flying Eagles’ box with eight minutes remaining in the game, secured a 1-0 win for Ghana.
The Flying Eagles will now hope Ghana secure a big win against Cote d’Ivoire to stand a chance of advancing into the semi-finals of the WAFU B Zonal qualifiers.
And reacting to the defeat, Bosso said on Brila FM:”What we played against Ghana was better than what we played in the first match (against Cote d’Ivoire) but unfortunately this time around we were very wasteful.
“We had chances that would have finished this game since the first half but we couldn’t do that. We were very wasteful and that was what cost us this match.
“They had only one chance and they got it, we had three freekicks of our own but didn’t do anything with it
The WAFU B Zonal tournament is the qualifiers for next year’s U-20 AFCON in Mauritania.
