Sensational sharpshooter Precious Williams headlines one of the explosive players to look out for when hostilities erupt in this year’s Under-17 Wafu B competition in Ghana.
The teenage star-in-the-making is a much respected top striker from HB Academy of Abuja. He is highly skilled in centre forward play in football at this level. He is said to find the back of the net with alarming regularity in test matches sand is expected to take the Wafu tournament by storm with the right service from the flanks and midfield.
His goals scoring, hold up play and overall contributions are expected to be crucial in contributing to Nigeria's success in this tournament.
The Eaglets also parade two flamboyant fullbacks in Emmanuel Michael and Jeremiah Olaleke.
Michael is expected to stamp his authority in the left full/wing back position despite initially starting out with the team as a left-sided attacking midfielder. He has beefed up his defensive discipline to such an extent that he is anticipated to be potent in both the offensive and defensive facets of the game. Jeremiah is touted as being tough defensively with impeccable timing for overlapping runs.
Goalkeeper Pascal Uzoho has already sparked much social media interest among fans being the younger brother of Super Eagles number one goalkeeper Francis Uzoho. He is said to possess exceptional reflexes and decent distribution for one so young.
Others include midfield machines Ebube Okere, Basil Mbata including smooth silky strikers Light Eke and Umar Abubakar. Battling Uzoho for the number one shift will be the eloquently impregnable Richard Odoh.
Togo and Ghana make up the other 2 teams with Nigeria in Group A. Only 2 finalists from 2 groups will make it to next year's Under-17 Afcon in North Africa.
