Flying Eagles head coach Ladan Bosso has expressed confidence that the team can post a positive result against Italy on Wednesday.
Nigeria and Italy will meet in the second match of Group D at the 2023 FIFA U-20 World Cup in Argentina, with the Europeans heavily tipped as favorites to win.
Both teams secured opening day wins over the Dominican Republic and Brazil respectively and will look to complete their knockout stage qualification with a win.

“We stayed back after our game against the Dominican Republic to watch Italy play Brazil and took a lot of notes from there,” Bosso said.
“The Italians have the midfield technique to overcome any team that is shaken by their pace and organisation, but we will know how to deal with that.
“We’ve got guys who can neutralize their lethal arsenal and get our own shots. Wednesday’s meeting will be interesting. We will respect them, but we are not afraid of any team in this league.” he announced.
