–Gallo dismissed over string of poor results
With less than 20 days to the start of the Under-20 World Cup in New Zealand, Nigeria’s opponent in their opening game, Brazil, have sacked coach Alexandre Gallo.
Nigeria will be hoping to pick her first win at the Under-20 level against Brazil when both teams clash in New Plymouth on the 31st of May 2015 and their chances have received a big boost with the sacking of Gallo.
Gallo was dismissed as coach of the U20 and U23 teams of Brazil, following a string of poor results and his replacements were named almost immediately.
New Brazil Football Confederation president Marco Polo Del Nero ordered a change of coaches in their youth teams in his bid to reposition their football after a disastrous world cup campaign last year.
SL10.ng sourced from the media in Brazil that the coach was axed due to the team poor performances especially at the last Copa America under-20 championship.
The man who will now be in the dug out against the Flying Eagles of Nigeria will be Rogerio Micale while senior team coach Carlos Dunga will handle the Under-23.
