Former Super Eagles midfielder, Mutiu Adepoju has advised the Nigeria Football Federation to start preparations for the next U-17 World Cup with immediate effect.
While reacting to the elimination of the Golden Eaglets at the ongoing FIFA U-17 World Cup on Wednesday, Adepoju believed lack of good preparation is responsible for the team’s early exit from the tournament.
The Manu Garba tutored side lost lost 3-1 to the Netherlands in the Round of 16 and failed to advance to the last eight.
“The round leather game is all about winning and losing but it is sad that we are losing; a lot can be done to reverse the trend,” Adepoju stated.
“We need to start preparing for the next championships now. We have to put the defeats behind us and see how we can regain our past glory.”
