The Nigeria U-23 national team can benefit from the immense talents of some of the victorious Golden Eaglets stars that just won the FIFA U-17 World Cup in Chile, midfielder Kingsley Sokari opines.
Sokari is one of the players listed by the U-23 Eagles coach Samson Siasia for the training camp in Morocco ahead of the CAF U-23 Cup of Nations which holds in Senegal.
Sokari spoke to Completesportsnigeria.com following the return of the Golden Eaglets team to the country on Wednesday.
"The team is made up of quality players. There's this thing we say in football. If you're good enough, you're old enough," the Enyimba midfielder told Completesportsnigeria.com.
"Yes they are good enough because they are all talented. I believe a couple of them could help us achieve our objectives in Senegal."
The former Flying Eagles star said the probable addition of some of the gold-winning Eaglets players does not stop their football education.
"Being part of the team to Senegal, suppose that happens, does not mean that their progression will be affected. One or two of them could be in the team. The U-17 players are our next Flying Eagles," Sokari added.
The Eaglets are expected to be hosted by President Mohammadu Buhari who was military Head-of-State when Nigeria won the U-16 World Cup for the first time in 1985.
