Meanwhile, Sports Minister and Chairman, National Sports Commission, Dr. Tammy Danagogo has cautioned the Manu Garba-led side not to rest on their oars but put in extra effort until the final is won.

The minister stressed that it would be more honourable if they go to the FIFA U-20 World Cup later in the year as African Champions.

“What remains now is for them to go all out and redouble their efforts and ensure they win the cup so that they go to the World Cup as African Champions.

“Their performance so far shows that their World Cup triumph at the U-17 level two years ago was no fluke as they have now matured into a formidable side,” the Minister said.
