Obuh vows to ride on Uruguay’s back


john_obuhFlying Eagles chief coach, John Obuh, has expressed his delight that the Nigeria Under-20 will be facing Uruguay in the round of 16 at the FIFA Under-20 World Cup in Turkey.

The South Americans drew the fixture courtesy of their 4-0 humiliation of Uzbekistan on Saturday to finish as the second-placed side in Group F.

Obuh said: “Any team that gets to this stage of the competition deserves respect so we will show them respect. They scored four goals against a side like Uzbekistan on Saturday to show they are a side that means business.”

The coach then revealed that he would study the opponents with a view of clinching a quarter final ticket at expense of the talented Uruguayans.

“We will take the time to study the tapes of the three games they have played at this tournament.

“It is important to have every detail of how they play and see what we can do to neutralise their potential threats,” he said.

“The game between both sides will hold on Tuesday in Istanbul.
