Golden Eaglets begin use of match analyses software

13 July 2015, 11:43

Abuja - Golden Eaglets Coach Emmanuel Amuneke at the weekend took his players to the classroom as part of their training regimen towards solid preparation for the 2015 U-17 World Cup in Chile, with the use of the match analyses software.

After weeks of physical conditioning and training, Amuneke said it was imperative that the players were shown animated tactical details in order to broaden their horizon.

Amuneke, one of few Nigerians who hold the high-profile UEFA Pro License certificate alongside the likes of Sunday Oliseh and Mutiu Adepoju, showed the players different tactical formations on a projector with intermittent question and answer sessions with the players.

“These boys are lucky because nobody taught us anything like this in our playing days in the national youth teams,”noted Golden Eaglets' assistant coach, Kabiru Baleria who played for the Flying Eagles set of 1989.

“We only made use of our brains most of the time in terms of organization on the field.

“Showing and explaining to the players some of the things we had earlier told them on the field are essential to their progress,” he noted.

Captain Kelechi Nwakali explained that the video clips helped in resolving some of their tactical naivety.

“We have learned so much again today with the video clips especially in our marking and defending mentality,” said Nwakali.

“It was an interesting time because we can see clearly some of our mistakes and the coaches have helped in correcting them.”
