  • Hope Daniel Daga is fully fit.

    This is World Cup and input from the bench matter in all matches. Coaching crew need to up their game and know what they are doing at this stage.

    Also, go to this competition with your best legs. No politics if you want result.

    God bless Nigeria.

    To me that coach has abokilized the U20 team and inviting a long list of players shows how confused and how much a gambler the coach may still be. By now,u should have a few more top quality additions from top European teams or within Africa in order to have a squad depth.

      The foreign based will join the team in a couple of weeks.Obviously Bosso will trim the squad to a manageable number before the foreign based professionals join them for the last stages of preparations.

  • Football is a topic I’ve always been interested in.

  • Whoever that is expecting any positive result from bosso is daydreaming.. with 70 percent northern prayers…we live in a country where we don’t tell ourselves the truth.. only daga..fredricks and maybe one or two players are talented in this team or na who you know or from which tribe are you…. expect nothing from bosso

      I’m afraid i disagree.The number 11 Ibeji,Jude Sunday,GK.Anigboso,Njoku,Agbalaka,Ugbelu,Ogwuche,Uchedikwu and Samson Lawal are great talents.
      You think qualification is a stroll in the park?These boys defeated Tunisia our super eagles couldn’t win by 4 goals to nil,not even when they fielded thier B team.
      Cut Bosso some slacks he has done well it’s not easy as most of you think,football has evolved.

      But when all our NT have 90% easterners is cool right? Leave the coach to do his job, it’s obvious he prefer those he is familiar with and close to his region.

    Maybe you don’t want to hear the bitter truth..as far as football is concern in Nigeria we know where you will see the talented players… check the last Nigeria under 17 world cup team.. how many of them are performing in Europe as of today..can u tell me where the son of DSS is playing today..I mean his team..he was at that tournament with so many others like him… today he can’t even make any Nigerian league team eleven to talk European team… corruption in Nigeria is at the highest level…if it continue like this it will get to everybody… thanks

    There were so many talents in the team, however, there was no team play in the last afcon qualifiers. I wasn’t surprised because Laddan bosso always present teams without team play. This boys are not fortunate to be tutored by a good coach. Throughout the tournament in the world cup, we will see a Nigerian team that will play with all their strengths to qualify for the knockout stage but lack of team cohesion will throw them out of the competition just like the last concluded tournament. It has nothing to do with the boys but the tactics that were given. Typical laddan Bosso’s style , run and power.
