Head Coach of Ebi Global FC, Ebi Baron has tipped the Golden Eaglets for greatness after he watched his boys got mauled 4-0 by Emmanuel Amuneke’s boys in a friendly match played at the Abraham Ordia Stadium, Calabar on Saturday.
A brace from Ebere Christian Osinachi and Ernest Agenor were all the Nigeria U-17 side needed to continue their unbeaten run against the amateur team.
In his post-game reaction, Baron conceded defeat to the Eaglets and admitted that his boys lost to a better team adding that he would go back home to correct their mistakes.
“This is a mauling,” confessed coach Baron. “We actually came with the mindset to get at least a draw but you just set us up against your tigers.
“It was a good match for us as we have learnt few more things today but frankly, I’m impressed with the technical and tactical display of the Golden Eaglets,” he added.
Amuneke’s side had earlier handed a 2-1 defeat to the side in a practice game played recently.
