Hamza Jiid says the Atlas Cubs know their work is cut out and need to step up to ensure they clinch victory against the Golden Eaglets of Nigeria on Wednesday.
The North Africans defeated South Africa 2-0 in their opening game at the ongoing 2023 Africa U-17 Cup of Nations on Sunday.
Said Chiba’s side will face a tougher opposition in the Golden Eaglets, who are two-time winners of the competition.
The goalkeeper however insisted they are up to the task.
“We will definitely give our best and try to battle for a win. We saw Nigeria in their match and we know it will be tough to beat them. But as players, we are ready,” Jiid said during his interaction with the media on Tuesday.
