Flying Eagles head coach, Ladan Bosso has backed his team to outrun Italy when both teams clash in the 2023 FIFA U-20 World Cup Group D clash on Wednesday night.
Both teams made a winning start to the competition with the Flying Eagles edging out debutants Dominican Republic 2-1 and Italy beating Brazil 3-2.
The Young Azzurri top the group on goal difference.
“We watched the Italy vs Brazil match. Tactically, Brazil was the better team and also the fitter team because, in the second half, Italy lost gas (and conceded two late goals),” Bosso told a press conference on Tuesday.
“We’re fitter than both of them.”
The 55-year-old tactician also reflected on his team’s victory against the Dominican Republic.
Bosso stated that it was important for his team to start the competition on a winning note.
“We got the three points, that’s most important,” he said.
“Now we hope to put up a better performance against Italy.”
