Lobi stars and home-based Super Eagles defender Ebube Duru is ruing missed opportunities for Nigerian players after coming to the realities of Nigeria’s imminent absence at the Football events of the Olympic games for Men and women following the draws on Wednesday.
Duru who played in the ill-fated U23 national team side under current Abia Warriors coach Imama Amapakabo told brila.net that he saw the draws and couldn’t help but regret what a massive opportunity was missed by Nigerian players especially those who ply their trade in the domestic league and would have been able to showcase themselves to the rest of the world via the games.
“I saw it and the first thing that came to my mind was we were supposed to be playing, it’s so painful though we didn’t go for the nation’s cup to play the qualifiers it’s very painful seeing that the biggest platform where you can showcase yourself and market yourself to the world you’re not there. So it’s very painful.”
