FIFA World Cup

Golden Eaglets' Style Of Play Under Nduka Ugbade Explains Why The Coach Should Manage Super Eagles.

When it comes to Nigerian football, the Golden Eaglets usually fly the country's flag high in international tournaments.

At the U17 level, Nigeria has been crowned champions of the world 5 times which is still a record no other country has managed to break.

This year, Nigeria are vying for a ticket to the U17 FIFA World Cup, and so far they have hugely impressed in the 3 matches they've played in the AFCON tournament.

Nduka Ugbade's boys have shown pure hunger to win games on the pitch, something that's lacking in the Super Eagles team.

Throughout their 3 group stage games, these set of Golden Eaglets players outplayed their opponents and always displayed the required workrate in pressing the opposition teams.

Simply put, Nduka Ugbade is making his boys to play heavy metal football, the same pattern of football Jurgen Klopp utilizes at Liverpool.

Ugbade is the kind of coach the Super Eagles need, someone who can make the players run all game and chase every loose ball on the field of play.

When you watch the Super Eagles play, they do not seem to have a clear style of play which limits the abilities of their star players, but with Ugbade, the likes of Osimhen and Chukwueze can start performing in international games again.
