Amuneke thanks Nigerians for support

02 November 2015, 12:09

Santiago - Golden Eaglets coach Emmanuel Amuneke has yet again thanked Nigerians with a special kudos to President Muhammadu Buhari after his wards decimated the A Selecao of Brazil 3-0 in Sunday's quarter-final match at FIFA U-17 World Cup Chile 2015 in Vina del Mar.

Among the scorers for the four-time champions within a spate of five minutes in the first half, were Victor Osimhen who took his tally to eight goals in five matches; as well as Kingsley Michael and Udochukwu Anumudu.

"Today is one of my happiest days because there were so many who doubted our abilities since we started this journey," Amuneke who will be 45 on December 25, told thenff.com

“But I’m grateful to God for making this (victory) possible for us and qualified for the semi-finals against all odds.”

He continued: “I want to use this opportunity to thank the players as well as the other technical team and backroom staff because as a team, we believe in what we are doing right from the beginning.

“This is a joyful moment for us and we want God to take all the glory of our success so far in this competition and we want to enjoy this moment before planning for our next match.”

Speaking further, Amuneke had some good words for PMB as President Buhari is fondly called for orchestrating changes in the polity of the county, saying the success of the Golden Eaglets so far at Chile 2015 was an audacity of change.

“Today’s victory represent change (for our country) in the sense that many who doubted us would see that hard work, merit and truth are non-negotiable terms in this team.

“Personally, I give kudos to President Buhari for introducing some changes in our country; and if all of us can embrace those changes, we can confidently say that everybody irrespective of where you come from can be given an equal opportunity to play for the county.”
