    You are a good coach.May you and the u-20 players achieve all the set goals towards the championship.May you become the coach of the super eagles soon so that you can bring the key players from u-20/u-23 and few from the current super eagles.With you as the coach and the combination of these group of players, nigeria will perform better.
