WAFU U20: Flying Eagles ready for ‘war’ against Ghana – Oladoye

FLYING Eagles midfielder Adewale Oladoye in action against Cote d'Ivoire U-20 Sunday

FLYING Eagles midfielder Adewale Oladoye says  their draw against Ivory Coast will have no effect  ahead of today’s crucial  clash against Ghana at the Stade Charles de Gaulles.

Ousmane Traore’s stoppage-time strike earned the Ivory Coast a 1-1 draw against Nigeria in their opening game in Port Novo, Benin Republic on Sunday -after Christopher Nwaeze had shot Nigeria into the lead.

 “We have learned our lessons from the 1-1 draw on Sunday, we didn’t play that bad.

“Overall, we had too few chances in their box and weren’t aggressive enough in the final third.

“We are ready to fight for a win. We need to play differently on Wednesday and find more ways of attacking and try to get behind their defense.

A number of foreign clubs represented by their scouts at the ongoing tournament are eying a move abroad for the lanky defensive midfielder following his sensational display against Ivory Coast.

“There have been inquiries about Oladoye from scouts and two clubs in France but we want him to focus more on the task here,” one of his representative who spoke on condition of anonymity said.

Recall Oladoye poised for move to Belgian club, Cercles Brugge in March before the outbreak of COVID-19.
