Team Nigeria’s Medal Chances In Tokyo Olympics Are Bright -Amuneke

Former Super Eagle Assistant coach, Emmanuel Amuneke believes Team Nigeria has what it takes to excel at the forthcoming Tokyo Olympic Games.

Amuneke, who was part of Nigeria’s Dream Team 1 that won a gold medal at the Atlanta Olympic in the US, stated this in an interview with Punch.

The former Barcelona star noted that Nigeria’s chances are bright beyond football and urged Nigerians to be confident in athletes representing the country.

“Our chances are bright. The good thing is that apart from football, we have other athletes that are going to participate in the Olympics.

“But the reality is that it depends on the level of preparation because other countries also have prepared their athletes and they would also be in a position to compete.

“But we just have to be confident in our athletes and those representing us have to believe in themselves. There’s the possibility of doing something for themselves.

“In 1996, nobody expected that Nigeria would win the football gold medal. This was also the same with Chioma Ajunwa, who also won a gold medal.

“So, there’s hope and there’s a possibility, but it all depends on the level of preparation and the level of confidence”, he said.

    Talk is chesp! Let’s be quietly hopeful Amuneke forgets that the 1996 football gold was built on the 1994 World Cup performance. It was not a fluke. Surprises are not sprung at the Olympics when athletes perform at low levels in the years before the games
