Former Nigerian international, Etim Esin, has warned the Flying Eagles not to underrate Guatemala when the two teams slug it out in their first group game at the FIFA U-20 World Cup in Colombia.
Speaking on Brila FM yesterday, the former Super Eagles player advised the team not to throw caution to the winds when they lock horns with the Guatemala side on Sunday.
The ex-international stated that Nigeria’s opponents should not be underrated since they are the champions from their region.
â€œGuatemala may not be a big country but they are the champions in their region.
â€œ I think Coach John Obuh must have learnt one or two lessons in the Four-Nation Tournament held in Panama. They need to get the three- maximum point in their opening match if they want to go far in the championship,â€ said Etim.
