    How was Olaleke picked as one of the best eleven of the tournament? Was he not the one who could not run when a pass was headed to him and had to pull down his Burkinafaso opponent to concede the first foul of the final game in just 2 minutes of the encounter? That guy is very slow

      Can’t judge him by one misstep alone. the kid was very strong and was highly noticeable. l might add.

    The Burkinababe and Ivorien No7s are the standout players of the tournament alongside our left back. Nduka Ugbade tactical flair was the difference maker. Give him another 6months he will create giant killers!!!
