The Eaglets won the first leg 1-0 in Abuja on Saturday with the return leg in Niamey on August 20.

“We will train and acclimatize in Sokoto a week to the match in Niger,” Manu disclosed.

The coach also expressed confidence the Eaglets will do the double over their opponents.

“We will beat them in Niger by God’s grace,” he said.

“We have seen the lapses with these youngsters, who were playing only their first international game.

“I assure Nigerians we will be smiling again after the match in Niger because we cannot afford to go out at this stage of the competition.”
