    YES O! Especially with ASIWAJU AHMED BOLA TINUBU as our PRESIDENT, I see The FUTURE of NIGERIAN FOOTBALL and SPORTS in general very BRIGHT!!!

  • I have never seen a Nigerian national team play such a highly tactical and discipline game. Yes they lost but kudos to Ladan Bosson and his crew, they did veru well.
    I was one of those who wrote him off and never believed him when he said that he has learnt from his previous U20 engagement.
    When they played Agentina and I saw how the organization was superb I started having a rethink.
    Tjen the Korea match.He should be allowed to start thinkering a new U20 team, the U23 and then the Super Eagles.Ladan Bosson has matured and it is clear for all to see.
