Lagos - Dolphins FC of Port Harcourt defender, Olawale
Isiaka has urged the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) to build on the success
of home-based Super Eagles at the just-concluded African Nations Championship
The Eagles on Saturday defeated the Warriors of Zimbabwe 1-0
to win the bronze medal in their debut appearance at the biennial championship.
Isiaka in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN)
in Lagos called for more support for the domestic league players from the NFF
and the team's handlers.
“Their performance is good for our league. It will make the
league to produce more players for the national team. This competition is very
good for the home-based players”.
“As we can see, they really proved that they are also good.
At least, the Super Eagles handlers can give some of them a chance to prove
themselves at the World Cup.
“They can even do better than the foreign-based players. All
they need is to be given is the chance and the guidance”.
