Exclusive:  2023 U-20 AFCON: Bosso Must Learn From His Mistakes Ahead U-20 World Cup –Aikhoumogbe

Former Super Eagles goalkeeper, Andrew Aikhoumogbe has urged the Flying Eagles coach, Ladan Bosso to learn from the mistakes he made at the 2023 U-20 Africa Cup of Nations.

Recall that Nigeria won the Bronze medal after trouncing Tunisia 4-0 in the Third-Place play-off on Friday.

However, in a chat with Completesports.com, Aikhoumogbe noted that the inability of the team to win the tournament shouldn’t be seen as a failure.

But then he advised Bosso to learn from some of the mistakes he made at the tournament in a bid to improve the team at the 2023 U-20 FIFA World Cup.

“There is no doubt that the team should have done better than this at the tournament but then, the winning the bronze medal should seen as victory for the players.

“My little advise for Ladan Bosso is for him to learn from his errors in order to build a better team for the world tournament in Indonesia.”

  • Mistake or deliberate act. I still don’t see the reason why Bosso kept Sunday on bench when the attackers can’t score goals.
    Nigeria would have played in the final of this competition and even won the trophy but the funny coach use his selfish ambition to mess up thins for the country.

    A sane clime won’t even consider him for U-10 football. Are we seriously expecting him to even make it to second round with this team and his coaching abilities?
    They should sack him and hire Manu Garba, Amùnike or Finidi George. Bosso no sabi anything!

      Listen darling, the coach tried his best. Go and do your worst if Nigeria wins the world cup.
      No kisses for you.

    • Laddan Bosso will not learn anything…He has taken Nigeria to the Junior World Cup years ago and he failed us woefully. If he would learn anything, that would have shown in his play in this tournament…Same story….He has nothing to give….

    Oga Andrew how come you did not mentor your replica goalkeeper for Nigeria? This is a question from me, one of your greatest fans…..I mean well ooo. Much respect to the goalkeeper I personally named the CAT SIR

      Finishing 3rd, though wasn’t our no.1 expectation, can become a blessing in disguise for the Flying Eagles at the World Cup, bcoz at least, it will make many teams not to prepare too hard when they are meeting us.

    If there is anything to learn it is modesty. We were sold a team that could crush anything in its path. And the young people who come to play stupidly without respecting their opponents. Senegal should serve as a lesson to us, they are as strong as us, maybe even stronger, but they respect all their opponents, playing intelligently and with caution. If we had done that, maybe we would win the tournament. For me we are at the level of Senegal, the only difference is that their coach respects the game and the opponents, ours does not. Senegal beat us because they respected us, Senegal beat Gambia because they respected them. You always have to respect your opponents, that’s the main lesson to be learned from this tournament. It’s not because Senegal is a strong team that they won the tournament, it’s mainly because they respect all their opponents by not playing stupidly.
