Golden Eaglets : Nigeria Working In Wrong Way With Players – Dia

Super Eagles fans call for exclusion of Ahmed Musa from against Sierra Leone squad

Senegal U-17 head coach Serigne Dia has revealed the reason why Nigeria players are not being harnessed to their full potentials after Golden Eaglets woes at the AFCON U-17.

The experienced tactician just helped the Terenga Cubs to win its first ever AFCON U-17 championship. And helped them do in the most adorable way.

The Senegalese cubs came from behind to beat North Africa rival, Morocco to the title.

But, it is important to know that going into the AFCON U-17, the Golden Eaglets are regarded as the favourites. Because the team have dominated the FIFA U-17 W’Cup, having won it a record 5-times.

Shockingly, the Nduka Ugbade led boys, crashed out of the tournament at the quarterfinals. The team was beaten by Burkina Faso’s Burkinabes. And by that reason, Nigeria will not be at the next edition of the FIFA U-17 W’Cup.

And when many criticised the players for not being good players, Dia, is of a different opinion. According to Dia, Nigeria is not working on the right way with it’s players.

And when Dia was buttressing his point, he reminisced on his encounters with Nigerian players. Because, he’s experienced the quality and skillfulness of players from Nigeria.

“When I was a coach at Aspire Academy, we had about 7 to 10 Nigerian players,” Dia was quoted by Owngoal Nigeria.

“They are skillful, fast and very talented. Nigeria just need to work with their players in the right way, in order to get the right results in the future.

Golden Eaglets’ coach, Nduka Ugbade is however upbeat that his players are the next generation of Nigeria football.

And current Super Eagles defender, Kenneth Omeruo, has charged the NFF to invest more in the Golden Eaglets squad.

According to Omeruo, the Golden Eaglets should be integrated into the next U-20 team, citing their exceptional talents.
