    My focus for now are the golden eaglets and the flying eagles I still think in this group we have plenty of talents to fill the voids in the super eagles.
    With the new players scoring as many as five we have an interesting group and hope for the future.
    The most important thing of note is the resumption of camp which started 3 months before the start of the playoffs a change from the usual 2 weeks in Pinnick’s era.
    Kudos to Gusua for this laudable development.

    • Yea, we need these guys drafted to the senior team(SE) particularly the guys in the current Flying Eagles. They impressed at the WAFU zone B in June and are far mire skillful, faster and fresher than many of the SE players.

      • @Tony, Really? They’re more skillful? This is lovely to hear. Please tell me more abeg. Tell me about the players as well, I haven’t had the opportunity to watch them play. 

  • The Flying Eagles of Nigeria have a promising future ahead of them in, 2023. With hard work, drive, focus and concentration, they will qualify for the World Cup.

    Good luck to the team!
