DESPITE the relative short period that the Flying Eagles' players have had together to prepare for the World Youth Championship (WYC), the team's coach, Samson Siasia, has said there is a high level of understanding among the players, which is highly commendable.

He revealed that this was an indication that the team was ready for the championship, which kicks off in Holland on Friday.
