How we can avert the danger ahead for our teams by doing it right.

Even though goals from Leon Balogun and Victor Osimhen helped the Super Eagles put behind them the shameful defeat to CAR same in Lagos four days earlier, one thing that it helped to bring to the fore is that Super Eagles are not there yet as our work have been cut out. Better take the shame of the loss at this stage than being embarrassed at the highest level by more illustrious footballing Nations.

It is also the opportunity for the managers of our teams and the Technical Adviser to look inward and discover new talents, a league that churned out Harry Iwuala who is earning big at Tunisian giant Esperance FC can't be a quasi-league nor terrible one, all we need is to be patient with these green horns. Clemence Westerhof was patient and it paid off, Steven Keshi took a big gamble with some of them in 2013 in South Africa and it paid off, the list is endless, so why won't Gernot Rohr tow the same line because to succeed and have an enduring legacy, you must work. He must as a matter of urgency go to match venues during games in the Nigeria professional football league (NPFL) and Nigeria National league and see what he can get from those games.

The strength of the Brazilian team, French, Italian, English, Spanish, even Egypt, Tunisia, Morocco and several countries lies in how good their domestic league is. who says Nigerian league can't return to its glory days? Only a lazy coach or manager would discountenance a player without trying him. So, let's do it right before disaster comes at us.
