  • presently, we have average wingbacks that can represent the super eagles well. We’ve always produced quality wing backs at age grade tournaments. Why is it difficult to see these players developed through the ranks to the national team. The NFF should try and work on developing our players after any age grade tournament. They shouldn’t just neglect them after these tournaments. Then what is the essence of spending huge amount on them? Spots in the main team can be given to these kids to participate in friendly matches and understudy their predecessors. We shouldn’t wait until our main players start retiring before we take viable steps. We shouldn’t make the same mistake that brought disrepute to our national team after the likes of KANU, Okocha, Oliseh, Amunike et al retired without quality replacement. But for now, we can really count on our RBs and LBs.
