Lagos - Sunshine Stars have a slim chance of qualifying for
continental duties next year, and coach Kennedy Boboye has blamed it on the
unavailability of his players who are most times on national duties.
Sitting 5th on the 20 team log, with just three going on to
represent Nigeria in both the CAF Champions League and the Confederation Cup
for 2016, Sunshine will need to win their two remaining games, as well as their
outstanding match against Lobi Stars.

Sunshine Stars has eight players featuring at the national
team, and the coach admitted it has affected his team’s result in the league.
“Yes it actually did, because you won’t have the quality
players as we used to for tough games. That was what affected us against
Heartland and Nasarawa United, but we keep learning because we can’t stop them
to answer national call,” Boboye told News24.
Goalkeeper Ikechukwu Ezenwa, midfielder Paul Onobi and
forward Tunde Adeniji have gained invitation to the Super Eagles, while Prince
Aggrey, Dayo Ojo, Seun Olulayo, Kingsley Eduwo and Stephens Eze was called up
in Samson Siasia’s list for the CAF U23 Championship in Senegal.For
