    Exceptional players from this ladan Bosso team with those from Ugbade team with 6 or 7 players from the current super eagles team, add Eze and Olise, with Iwobi as captain and we are good to mount a serious challenge for the world cup in 2026.

    On the technical side, appoint Bosso and ugbade as assistant coaches and get a truly world class coach to handle and mould the team together.Appoint Olofinjana or Emenalo as technical Director.

    The heart and soul of this new team should be from the streets of Nigeria like Osinhem.Our self entitle ex internationals stay clear of this team as they develop.

    The era of any foreign born player scoring a goal or playing well for Luton town and the next minute he is invited to the Super Eagles team must stop.They must be playing at a top club and can add value or improve the team.

    Finally, the team must have 4 to 5 players playing for big clubs within the top four in the leagues in England, France, Spain ,Netherlands, Germany and Italy playing champion league football season after season.Our team is currently filled with relegation battlers , Division 2 players and players of mid table teams. .
    The same should happen to the super falcon.Waldrum should go and his female assistant appointed as the main coach.She has more pedigree than Waldrum as she has coached the US female national team before.
