Garba Lawal: U23, U20 Coaches Must Provide Eagles Materials

By James Agberebi:

Former Nigeria international Garba Lawal has tasked coaches of the U-20 and U-23 national teams to provide the country with quality players, reports

Lawal speaking in an interview with Sports Radio 88.9 Brila FM, stated that it was high time the country started producing players who will don the colours of the senior national team in the future.

“It’s sad that we will not be in Equatorial Guinea (for the 2015 AFCON), especially after winning the last edition in South Africa. The damage has been done, what can we do? We just have to move on and focus on a bright future.

“Now is the time for the coaches of the U20 and U23 to provide the next sets of players for the senior national team. They should provide us with quality players who will do the country proud in the future.”

The national U-20 side his handled by former Golden Eaglets gaffer Manu Garba, while ex-international Samson Siasia is in charge of the U-23 side.

  • Keshi is arrogant. Is Ihenacho not quality? Look you don’t just throw experience players out of a team as Keshi is doing. Anichebe etc is not given a look in.Look at Ghana they started encouraging their young players by giving them playing time but on our part they are not matured. Let Keshi think he is the best coach in Nigeria,that is completely arrogant and lack of respect,by what parametre did he conclude he is the best? This man continue to run mouth as a basket keake water. He suppose to hide his head in shame and accept his failure.
