He named the likes of Kelechi & Chidibere Nwakali, Junior Lokosa, Henry Onyekuru and Olarenwaju Kayode as youth players that should break into the team in the future and provide a variety of options for selection, going to major tourneys.

“There are lot of positives we can take out of this experience. Statistically in the World Cup, we have the youngest team, this is a major positive.
