The poor performances of Nigeria's Youth team in the World has left a lot asking what the problem is.
Former Chairman of the Nigeria National League Pastor Emeka Inyama identifies lack of consistency not having the right foundation as the problem.
Speaking exclusively to Favour Itua, the administrator with over 36 years experience says Nigeria must be consistent in moving from one level to the other.
"We are not consistent as a nation, you have boys play in Under 16 or 17 and you hardly see anyone graduate to under 20 or Super Eagles.
We really have to work on transition from one stage to the other of the same players over the years by so doing we are consistent and we know the kind of products we are producing.
But when you have an Under 17 that go to the World Cup all of them are abroad but you hardly see anyone transit to the next level is a problem.
Speaking on Foundation he had this to say.
"Secondly, we do not have the right foundation, the academies we have in Nigeria are men called academies, it ought to be Under 10, 13, or 15, we need to get to that stage to revive our Football".
