Flying Eagles captain, Daniel Bamaiyi says the team is highly motivated to beat Gambia in their semi-final clash at the 2023 Africa U-20 Cup of Nations.
Bamaiyi and his teammates must no doubt be at their best to beat a vibrant Gambian team that has impressed many with their effective attacking display in this competition.
The Young Scorpions have won all their four games, scoring nine goals without conceding.
Despite their opponents impressive run in Egypt 2023, the centre-back insisted that the Flying Eagles are battle ready for the Gambians.
“The match is important for us and winning is very important. We want to win and take the trophy back to our country,” Bamaiyi was quoted by CAFonline.
“We are not under any pressure, we enjoy every match and go into each match with new energy and motivation,” he said.
The Yumyum FC ace missed the Flying Eagles quarter-final win against the Hippos of Uganda due to suspension.
Bamaiyi is expected to be named in the starting line-up for the clash against Gambia.
