Head coach of Nigeria U-23 team, Samson Siasia has invited Golden Eaglets wonder boys Victor Osimhen, Kelechi Nwakali, John Lazarus and Udochukwu Anumudu, as he continues to prepare for the 2015 African U-23 Championship in Senegal.
Siasia explained that their call-up was a reward for their fantastic displays at the just concluded FIFA U17 world cup in Chile where their fantastic performances saw Nigeria winning the trophy.
“I have been monitoring the progress of these boys while the team was being built by my brother, Emmanuel Amuneke,”
“Don’t forget we were in the same hotel and used the same pitch to train and I have been impressed with what I saw them do in Chile, so I think what I just did was rewarding them for a job well done.
“Their invitation is only to tell other players that they too can progress to the senior cadre if they are level headed and keep working on their game.
“For me age is not a factor; if they can give me what I want, then they will be part of my team to Senegal. But they must justify their invitation for no player in my team has automatic shirt.”
Hmmm...And that's how they will scatter that fantastic team, instead of allowing them to continue playing together as a team. Anyways am a blogger not a footballer analyst. #TheTruth sha.
