CHAN: Dropped Eagles Vow To ‘Fight Back’



Gambo Mohammed, Yinka Adedeji and Mfon Udoh have vowed to fight their way back to the Eagles after they were dropped ahead of CHAN.
Adedeji, who was axed following a hamstring injury, said he was disappointed to miss out but hopes to soon return to the team.

“It’s sad that I have to drop out due to injury but I am happy that I never allowed the past to dwell in my heart and soon I will return,” he told
“I thank Coach Stephen Keshi and other members of the technical crew for giving me this opportunity and I assure them that when next I am called, I won’t fail the team and the nation.”
Pillars striker Gambo also missed the final cut as a result of injury and said he has taken his exclusion in good faith.
“These things do happen and I take it in good faith and I will soon be back. I wish my teammates the best of luck in CHAN,” the Kano Pillars forward declared.
“I have taken my exclusion from CHAN final squad in good faith,” added Mfon Udoh.
“I did my best, but maybe it is not yet my time to represent Nigeria at a tournament.”
The other players dropped were Ikechukwu Azubuike, Ibrahim Pius and Eaglets striker Taiwo Awoniyi.
