Leader of Nigeria delegation to Ouagadougou and NFF 2nd Vice President/LMC chairman, Mallam Shehu Dikko has predicted that more Nigeria Premier League stars would soon be breaking into the main Super Eagles team.
Dikko made the bold prediction after watching the League stars secure qualification for the 4th African Nations Championship with a 2-0 aggregate win over the Etalons of Burkina Faso.
“I am the chairman of the League, and I am convinced one hundred percent that we have quality in the League, and that more home boys can break into the full Super Eagles squad. The League boss told thenff.com
The Super Eagles B join hosts Rwanda, Morocco, Tunisia, Angola, Zambia, Uganda, Ethiopia, Mali, Guinea, Gabon, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Niger Republic and Zimbabwe.
Host of the inaugural edition of the competition in 2009, Cote d’Ivoire will host Ghana on Friday, while Cameroon will tackle Congo in Pointe Noire on Saturday, for the remaining two spots.
With the CHAN qualification off the way, the next assignment for the Eagles is the 2018 World Cup qualifiers against Swaziland in November.
