Key questions as Nigeria’s Flying Eagles fall to Gambia in CAF U-20 Africa Cup Of Nations

Here Is The Easy Money-Making Trick Everyone Is Talking About! Learn More Here!

Nigeria’s inability to win the Semi-Final clash with Gambia may have revived the wound still dwelling in the heart of soccer-loving Nigerians after the senior National team’s failure to make it to Qatar 2022 World Cup.

Many fans have used the chance to criticize the Ladan Bosso-led flying Eagles side for their inability to make it to the U-20 final to face Senegal.

And with all this in view, we take a look at the key questions vital for the team going into the future.

Flying Eagles Coach Ladan Bosso Points to Inexperience as Reason for Loss

Has Ladan Bosso really delivered for Nigeria?

One of the biggest queries here is, has Flying Eagles boss Ladan Bosso really delivered as a Coach for Nigeria at any level?

Has he assembled a team that the country was proud of in the past? I don’t think so if the result books are traced to the latter.

So why then do we keep recycling pain and failure, time and time again? It makes no sense at all. How come he got the job amidst the Cabals in the Nigerian football system?

This was the same thing that Paul Aigbogun did and assembled a team that only went to disgrace Nigeria in the World Cup some years ago. Nigeria needs a change and the time is now.

Is Nigeria’s midfield cursed for real?

The Nigerian midfield has been a huge ball game for National team handlers over the years. The country’s inability to find a creative outlet in the midfield is a sign of Nigeria’s incompetency in scouting.

Such have reduced arguably the most talented football Nation, Nigeria running around for the services of talents like Ebere Eze and Michael Olise to name but a few.

It has made Nigeria look desperate and needy as far as the talent above is concerned. That’s why these English-based players have the bragging right in the mix as against a giant in football like Nigeria.

While the likes of Alex Iwobi, the Kelechi’s (Iheanacho and Nwakali) along with Joe Aribo have not proven enough to be trusted in the position for a long time.

A change is needed and an urgent one now as Nigeria’s U-20 side struggled for the same creativity (dilemma) in far away Egypt.

Don’t we have good strikers in Nigeria?

The team managed a total of 4 goals in five matches against the likes of Senegal,  Egypt, Mozambique, Uganda and Gambia.

This is an indication of how poor the team strikers in Ladan Bosso’s Flying Eagles were.

The stats here showed that they couldn’t even average a goal per game against the aforementioned side. Imagine how bad they would be at the U-20 World Cup in Indonesia if nothing is done.

They may not win a single game if care is not taken to find new strikers for the flying Eagles
