Former Nigeria international Femi Opabunmi has stated that more youngsters should be handed the chance to enjoy what he enjoyed exactly 18 years ago when he was handed a shock start to play a world cup fixture against the Three Lions of England.
Opabunmi speaking in a chat with www.brila.net said modern football has blooded younger players that have shown to be good when handed such opportunity and this is already a practice in Europe where exceptional youngsters are handed the chance to impress at the big stage.
“Yes why not if they are exceptional players why not? You can see the likes of all these European countries who encourage young players.
Look at France now with Mbappe, he was exceptional at the last world cup in Russia why not? When they see that you’re exceptional at the U17 why not, they should give them chance.”
