Nigeria U17 coach Emmanuel Amuneke is pleased with the performance of his boys in 2-0 win over USA in Fifa U17 World Cup in Chile.


Amuneke said after the match: “Considering it was the first match, I think it was a good game. At the beginning it was pretty even, everything very tactical, neither of us wanted to make a mistake,”

“At half time I told my players to believe in themselves, and it worked, because we were more precise.

“Besides the three points, which are very important, I also liked that we kept our heads even when we could not get things going.”

Nigeria will play host nation Chile at the Estadio Sausalito, Viña del Mar on Tuesday.
