    The truth and problem is, these guys may end up performing at the world cup, playing the NIGERIAN brand of robust football. But then what happens after that? The greedy self serving agents will come selling these Nigerian talents to all kinds of foreign clubs, all for the sake of monetary gain, and sadly at the detriment of the players who now starts learning all over again, how to play other countries definition/idea of good football thus leaving them playing second fiddle to those country’s indigenous talents. Then over a period, these once talented footballers starts losing that motivation to play football,for they may start struggling with game time while conforming with the new foreign style of play and eventually fizzle out. WHO THEN SUFFERS? The players; Nigeria suffer the loss, our SE suffer the loss, our league suffers etc and WHO GAINS? Those greedy agents and those involved in these syndicacy. So then,until we revamp our league to become very attractive to be able to warrant players preferring to remain here to further their career and also put a clog in the wheel of these self centred abents/ cohorts, we will only continue to shadow chase in celebrating our under age teams.

    Now this look like an U20 team. The players look so. And they seem to be making progress so far under ladan bosso. I must say kudos to him. I hope the teams they’ve been facing in the friendlies are providing the required and similar test to what they will face at the Qualifying tournament. Things have worked together to ensure they have more preparation time. I suggest they start playing NPFL teams in their friendlies going forward…..most of the players they will play against at the WAFU tournament are already playing for league teams in their various countries.

      You are Right…. But Bosso is a crap like Rohr….. Rohr never exploits the weaknesses of the opponents Nor offers confidence boasting performance. Its all the individual brillance of the players like Moses,Ighalo and Mikel that took us to the last World cup
