Dikko still excited with Eagles CHAN qualification

27 October 2015, 08:56

Abuja - Leader of Nigeria delegation to Ouagadougou and NFF 2nd Vice President/LMC chairman, Mallam Shehu Dikko, has expressed joy and sense of satisfaction at the Super Eagles B’s qualification for the 4th African Nations Championship.

The LMC supremo had challenged the players in the dressing room an hour before kick off, to play with determination and discipline to do the nation proud, and also to make a strong case for their ilk (players in the domestic League) with regards to greater consideration for places in the main Super Eagles squad.

“Your success here today will make your home –based professional colleagues happy, that you have represented them with courage. Also, you need to win for your Head Coach, Sunday Oliseh, who is recuperating in Belgium. Your qualification for Rwanda and the way you play will convince the coaches that home -boys deserve more places in the Super Eagles A team.

“I am the chairman of the League, and I am convinced one hundred percent that we have quality in the League, and that more home boys can break into the full Super Eagles squad. So, you need to show your stuff here this afternoon.”

At the end, Dikko (who made the charge in company with chairman of NFF Technical Committee, Chief Felix Anyansi-Agwu, NFF Deputy General Secretary Emmanuel Ikpeme, Deputy Director of Competitions Bola Oyeyode and club chairmen Akin Akinbobola, Davidson Owumi, Paul Chibuzor and Okey Kpalukwu) praised the boys for their strong mental attitude and fighting spirit.
