Amapakabo Confident Olympic Eagles Will Shine At 2019 U-23 AFCON

LOlympic Eagles head coach Imama Amapakabo is positive of a good outing at the 2019 U-23 Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt, Completesports.com reports.

“The players have been working very hard and that is a positive point. They are looking forward to the tournament with a lot of enthusiasm and confidence,” Amapakabo told nff.com.

“We are also happy to have most of the Europe-based squad members with us already. That allows time for good planning, bonding and team building.”


Reigning champions Nigeria are in Group B and will confront Cote d’Ivoire in their first game at the Al Salam Stadium in Cairo on Saturday afternoon.

They will also face Zambia (Tuesday, 12th November) and South Africa (Friday, 15th November) at the same venue.

The Olympic Eagles are expected to depart Ismailia for Cairo on Thursday, and will be quartered in Novotel Hotel.

Team captain Azubuike Okechukwu; defenders Bitok Stephen, Josiah Chukwudi and forward Taiwo Awoniyi are the only players still expected in the team camp, and will arrive before their departure to Cairo.

    We heard you coach Imama. Mouth doesn’t do it. I’m not convinced with your performances as a coach so far.

    However, I’m still doing my scouting and I discovered another young Nigerian/Swiss player who can play for Nigeria.


    Noah Okafor (born 24 May 2000) is a Swiss footballer who plays as midfielder for FC Basel.[1] He has also represented Switzerland at various youth levels.

    OVER TO YOU CSN. This guy is a baller. I don’t know who is scouting for coach Rohr. Why are they not seeing these talented players?


    This two players are too much and deserve a call from coach Rohr.

    I’m trying my best to get Super Eagles more super star players.

    God bless Nigeria!!!

    • Dr. Drey 2 years ago

      @ Omo9ja…if you want to scout players…pls go and scout unknown players like Tobias Lawal, Adebayo Adeleye, Dillon Hoegewef, Dennis Adeniran, Prince Adegoke, Tyrese Omotoye, Ade Odubeko, Kris Ojeme and other unknown youngsters ….Not people who are already in the limelight, already playing top flight football and even in EUROPA league (LMAO), making headlines all over the place, then you come here to lie to us your DISCOVERED them.

      • Bishop 2 years ago

  • Asoko Emmanuel 2 years ago

    Tanks a million @Dr Drey for the very concise manner you responded to that clown.Noah has been in the news for God knows how long was even compared to Chukwueze with the way they play (as he also likes to take on players and running at them at will) fine player by all standard.So Omogja you lost this one again as usual.I know your sins and inadequacies will always find you out.You only watch 2,3 minutes of YouTube videos and you come here to make a hell of notice,compare to a coach who most times goes to the stadium to see the matches and watch the players closely or when he’s not there sends his scouts.Go and look for other jobs you are so bad at this.

    • Bishop 2 years ago

      I personally don’t like your promptness to label someone a clown. This your beef with him should not be forever na..it spreads negative feeling here.

  • Chairmanfemi 2 years ago

    God bless you @Asoko and Drey! You guys took the words out of my mouth. That @Omo9ja ehn, I don’t know whatever he smokes that makes him come to CSN to display the effect. Hopefully God will deliver him one day

    • Ayphillydegreat 2 years ago

      Lol! Whatever omo9ja is smoking must be real prime time hudini. Lmao!! Discover kọ discovery ni.  

  • Omo9ja 2 years ago

    Ahahahahaha, this is serious ooo. What do I call this? Jealousy or what?

    I said I discovered Aribo but you guys didn’t agree with me. Now these players.

    I have been doing this for a while now.

    Someone even said I smoked something?

    AY, you don come back from you business trip abi? Liar lol.

    You saw what our world class coach did against Brazil then, you ran away lol.

    For you Dr. Drey, continue okay?

    What else can I do to satisfy you people?

    God bless Nigeria!!!

    • Peterside Udah 2 years ago

      Don’t mind all the clandestines. It is that Ayphilly that disappointed me the most. I thought he had seen the light.
      But the unfortunately, the business trips have eroded some of his footballing edge.
      When you discovered Aribo, where were they?
      When you discovered Viv, Where were they?
      When you discovered Jamilu Collins and Chuba Akpom, where were they?
      Rather than pay homage to the greatest pundit of our time, they are following in the footsteps of that Clandestine called Dr Drey.
      You don’t worry, by the time the prophesies of Omo9ja come to past, you all will be sorry for not listening to the all seeing one.

      • Omo9ja 2 years ago

        @Peterside Udah, please don’t kill me for here o ahaha. That was funny ooo.

        They refused to appreciate me. Oh well, no wahala. God bless Nigeria!!!

    The fights have dominated the good football sharing atmosphere that kept so many glued to the site. One thing i must acknowledge is that all the dissenting parties are great analysts with varying angles of the game, they complement each other more than they contradict, the problem is, you guys look more at your differences rather than the fact of the capacity you all possess.

    If the fighting can reduce, the site will once again be that one big Nigerian football loving and knowledgeable famaily that we once had. It’s like since the site became a compact site relegating tha Ghanians and South Africans, we have turned on one another. Sometimes these fights are really interesting when done in thd spirit of sportsmanship but most often we are at each other’s throat ready to snuff life out of the other. I would rather we disagree to agree that this present declaration of war of words on one another.
