    I don’t know the reason why our Super Eagles team is being regarded as a young team as an excuse for not performing as expected in the world cup. See the french team,filled with young and hungry-for-success players. Mbappe is just 19,see the way he plays like a professional. So,being young isn’t an excuse,we need to get things right. We need creative players in the team, and good strikers. Most of the present young players are not the future of the team. We need to scout for more talented players. There are lots of them out there. And the search should start now,for the preparation of the Nations Cup and the next world cup.
