Dolphins midfielder wants NFF to build on CHAN success

03 February 2014, 17:11

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 (CHAN).

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”.
