    This is an amazing news for the FE and especially Bosso, as regards the postponement. This should really help him raise the team he currently has to be a well oiled machine while still looking for other players that can add value to the team. He doesn’t have any excuse like no time to raise a team. Although to be fair our preparation took longer than other teams but he now has the time he needs.

      Things actually seem to be working together for good for Bosso and the U20 team. 1st it was the postponement and then bam…the hosts withdrew. And in this “coronic” times, few countries will want to take up hosting tournaments at short notice. At least in the WAFU B block…only Nigeria and Ghana can do that and I doubt Nigeria is ready for any such now…not after the palliatives and endsars scandals rocking the nation at the moment. I really pray (for the sake of this current generation of youth players who are supposed to use this opportunity to launch themselves to stardom) that the U17 and U20 win their respective WAFU tournaments and at least qualify for their respective AFCONS

        Well said, I think the 9ja youth should also harass the NFF to ask them since 1985 when 9ja started competing for FIFA u17, till recently as 2 yrs ago, where has all the moni meant for the development of youth football. Afterall, the moni is supposed for be for youth benefit rather than benefitting these pot belly crooks parading themselves as soccer administrators. Everyone should soro soke, these greedy people are wasting our youth Most poor people have kids who strive to succeed in football but are deny the opportunities to pursue dia dreams bcos of some greedy people who are never satisfied with the already stolen moni. Will d stolen moni go with them to dia graves? Its just annoying. We d people have to soro soke, this can’t keep happening.
