This Eagles Is A Sectional Team - NUJ Boss

This Eagles Is A Sectional Team - NUJ BossThe present set of Super Eagles, assembled by Coach Stephen Keshi has been described as a sectional team which doesn’t reflect the true representation of Nigeria’s strength in soccer and the federal character symphony we always see in our national teams.

Chairman Oyo State Chapter of Nigerian Union of Journalist, Comrade Gbenga Opadotun made this call in Ibadan while reacting on the dismal outing of the Super Eagles in their first outing in the on-going African Nations Cup in South Africa.

The NUJ boss queried why a player like Obafemi Martins with his improved form was excluded from the AFCON team leaving the team without any player from South-West geo-political zone of the country.

''What we all wanted is the success of our national team but Coach Stephen Keshi has given lots of room for questions in the composition and way he assembled his team for the Nation Cup, there is no way that one would not be forced to ask questions with what the team played against Burkina-Faso in their first match.

''Without any prejudice to this present crop of players and their handler, me I don’t see them as a true representation of our present strength in the game of football that we all love and follow in Nigeria. Keshi should try and balance the composition of the team to reflect federal character that  is being practiced in the country”, Opadotun, an ardent 3SC fan noted.
