The former Flying Eagles handler has tipped the Emmanuel Amuneke’s boys to soar past El Tri in Friday’s 2015 Fifa U17 World Cup semifinal clash
Emmanuel Amuneke’s boys brushed three-time champions Brazil 3-0 to reach this stage while El Tri beat Ecuador 2-0 in Coquimbo.
Bosso said Golden Eaglets were splendid in their two games and are hot favorites to book a final ticket. However, he warned that Amuneke’s boys should maintain tactical discipline for the remaining part of the competition if they hope to defend their title.
“I want to assure you that the Eaglets will beat Mexico and also win the U17 World Cup again. They have played with so much enthusiasm and discipline and if they maintain same till the end of the competition,
it will be hard for any of the remaining teams to beat them,” Bosso told Sportmasta.
“I also want to hail the impact of the highest scorer, Victor Osimhen. He has been remarkable in Chile and I tip him to lead Nigeria to the title.”
The game billed for the Estadio Francisco Sanchez Rumoroso, Coquimbo will be the third meeting both teams will be facing in the history of this competition. Manu Garba’s boys defeated the Mexicans 6-1 and 3-0 respectively in the 2013 edition staged in the United Arab Emirates.
