The Nigerian team’s head coach, Isah Ladan Bosso, said that his team has been focusing on taking one game at a time, which has been their pre-tournament philosophy. Bosso had previously coached the Flying Eagles to the quarter-finals of the FIFA U20 World Cup in Canada 16 years ago.
We are delighted to have executed a perfect game plan against Argentina. Our strategy and tactics worked out, and the boys worked very hard. Now, we have to concentrate on what to expect from the Koreans. We have been watching their games at this championship, and we have a good idea how to prepare for them.
