After having released the list of players to prosecute the Under-23 Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt to which 3 teams will qualify for next year's Olympic games, fans have gone to various Internet chat rooms and discussion boards to offer the views.
The list is made up of no less than 10 foreign based with several of them like Taiwo Awoniyi, Tom Dele-Bashiru and Valentine Ozornwafor bringing wealth of under-aged football to the team.
Commenting on an Internet platform, a Nigerian fan, who has no faith in the coach but believes in the abilities of the players said: "Very good squad. The only problem now is the Coach.
If these boys will win, know that it’s by there own technical abilities. All 3 forwards play abroad. Bright Enobhakare is on loan from Wolverhampton Wanderers and we all know about the remaining strikers.
See the midfield and defense with very sound players playing abroad. Sincere Seth plays in Belarus, hard-tackling Valentine and the rest are known names like Tom Dele-Bashiru, Nwakali, Sunusi, Ndifereke amongst others.
So the Coach has no excuse to Fail!" he concluded.
