Flying Eagles Won't Take Sudan For Granted - Osimhen


/ by Augustine Akhilomen
Flying Eagles striker, Victor Osimhen has said that the team would not take the second leg fixture of the Africa U-20 Nations Cup qualifier against Sudan for granted at the Teslim Balogun Stadium on Sunday, July 24.

The seven time African champions came from a goal down thanks to Samuel Chukwueze and Victor Osimhen's brilliant goals to give Nigeria a huge chance of qualifying for the tournament slated for Zambia.

Osimhen, who got the Flying Eagles in front against Burundi in Calabar in the last round, through a well taken penalty kick, told that the team would guarantee nothing but the ticket for Nigerians against the Junior Falcons.

"The first leg win over Sudan has come and gone as far as I am concern. Playing against them in Khartoum wasn't an easy task but I am glad that we are one step away from qualifying for the Africa U-20 Nations Cup in Zambia,” Osimhen told

"Besides, we are not going to take Sudan for granted in the reverse fixture at the Teslim Balogun Stadium because the game is yet to be won. Judging by the first leg, I expect a much tensed match in the second leg, but then, I am confident the team will overcome them.”
