Eaglets victory shows we have great potentials – Gaiya
By JACOB ONJEWU DICKSON
The victory of the Golden Eaglets at the just concluded FIFA U-17 World Cup in Chile is an indication that Nigeria has got huge potentials in sports, particularly in football, immediate past Chairman, House Committee on Sports, Honourable Godfrey Gaiya has said.
Responding to questions from New Nigerian Sports on the success of the
young lads on phone Wednesday night, he described their performance as
brilliant.
He explained that the result has brought about a new hope for the
senior national team, Super Eagles, as well as the Dream Team, as they
battle for qualification for the FIFA 2018 World Cup, Nations Cup and
the Rio 2016 Olympic Games.
“We are pleased with this outcome. I recall telling Nigerians to be
patient with the team after the African cadet championship where they
failed to lift the trophy. I am happy that I have been vindicated,” he
added.
Gaiya when asked what should be done to consolidate such victories,
explained that we must get it right at the amateur leagues, for the
Super Eagles and the professional leagues to get good players to
replace aging ones.
“That is why I am going for the Nationwide League1 Chairmanship
position, so that we can make it attractive enough to discover players
to feed our professional leagues, which will in turn, feed our Super
Eagles with an endless supply of quality players,” he concluded.
