    Good tournament

    GoldenEaglets Number 17 Ebube Okere and FlyingEagles number 13 Daniel Daga are the future of SuperEagles midfield if nurtured properly. 

    • Ololo 1 year ago

      You are so correct.. just like in the u20 the no 10 is not playing anything, but the other midfielder Is a star….

    • Greenturf 1 year ago

      Yeah @Aphyillydegreat as well the number 12 don’t know his name he’s dominant in the central midfield.

    • Ignatius Abo 1 year ago

      Well said Brodaman Ayphillydegreat. Those players are the future of the Super Eagles.
      Heaven bless the Golden Eaglets and all deserving members of Nigeria’s youth teams.

      • Ayphillydegreat 1 year ago

        You’re right Greenturf. The number 12 Oyebanjo is also very good very tall lad in the mold of Ndidi. In fact the midfield trio is a bundle of talents with the number 10 Okeke a lefty not doing bad as well. But that number 17 Okere is a joy to watch. The team has already delivered a free kick specialist. 

        Yes Ololo the FlyingEagles number 13 Daniel Daga and the number 14 Onuche Ogbelu the SS3 student are bundle of talents for the Nearest future. I hope Nigeria can nurture them properly. Great times ahead. We can only build from our youth teams.

    Nigeria 2 Togo 0 .Half time

  • This Golden Eaglets are playing like Manu Garba’s 2013 world cup winning side with their deadly counter-attacking football.

    On shouldn’t be suprised though, Coach Nduka Ugbade was assistant coach on that occasion….

  • Lopez 1 year ago

    The pitch is also good for Eaglets passing football and fast counters.Overall Ugbade has done well.

  • TONY 1 year ago

    I would prefer Nigeria to win this game by just a one-goal margin.

  • Ololo 1 year ago

    The no3 Emmanuel Michael with another man of the match.

    This time I don’t think he deserves it, there is nothing so special in his game to be collecting so many man of the match.. he did well though but he is not yet there.. the best player for Me in our team is that no17 boy ebube.. that boy is Good.. our defense is also very Good but receive little praises.. the next match will be the most important game that will qualify us to the African tournament

  • John-I 1 year ago

    Great team effort and resilience. Michael is a fantastic talent. Ebube has the composure and ball skills of Iniesta. The back-four did well too. Their communication was excellent. The boys gave a good account of themselves in general.

    Light Eke may look like an ‘ajibota’ but he’s a smart finisher. He has cunning anticipation, confidence and striking ability of a modern-day striker. His anticipation to score that third goal was brilliant.

    Ugbade is doing a great job
