The growth and betterment of the Super Eagles as a Nigerian National team is in the hands of the just and true football scouts. Super Eagles can become one of the best teams in the world but it is left to the officials in charge of the Team's development. Undoubtedly, God has given Nigerians a lot of Talents when it comes to football but these talents aren't using their skills for something tangible, what most of them do is to show their skills in street football.
A lot of good footballers are in Nigeria but they aren't opportune to prove their worth because no one has sighted them. I believe one of the best things that can be done by Nigerian football officials to make changes to the structure of Super Eagles is to send out scouts to different states in Nigeria who will look out for football talents. Many youths waste their skills without earning anything for it, if Nigerian scouts can travel round to pick these sets of people, give them sound orientation, they could turn out to be great players who will become big stars for the Country's national team.
Many European top stars are products of street football and because of how they were treated by the Country that discovered them, they pledge their loyalty to the Country's national team. The likes of Paul Pogba, Ngolo Kante, Naby Keita, and many other football stars were singled out from their performances in street football. Today, these players are great personalities for their club and country. Pogba and Kante recently won the world cup with France and they registered their names amongst the Icons in the Country's national team.
Adding talented players to Super Eagles will be a huge development and that will help the team to compete at higher places than they are currently. Selection of players shouldn't be on politics, merit must be a priority and deserving players should be registered with the team. If this is done, Nigeria will progress in the world of football and they may move on to win the world cup like many other European countries.
