A former Green Eagles player, Adokie Amiesimaka, on Thursday said the dismissal of Stephen Keshi-led Super Eagles technical crew will not change anything in the team.
The News Agency of Nigeria reports that Keshi and other members of his technical crew were sacked after beating Sudan 3-1 at the National Stadium Abuja in the 2015 African Nations Cup qualifier on Wednesday.The win came after Nigeria had lost two of its previous encounters and drew one to reduce its chances of qualifying for the tournament taking place in Morocco next January.
The Nigeria Football Federation had put in place a consortium of coaches led by Shuaibu Amodu to handle the team in its remaining two matches.
“We have had 14 coaches since France 1998, does it mean that we do not have qualified coaches that can transform the team?
“Sacking Keshi and his crew does not change a thing; how do we expect Keshi to perform magic overnight, our problem did not start today.
“At the senior national team level we should have elite players from the local league, but since Clement Westerhof, we have stopped producing players discovered from our league.
“The crop of players we produce these days shows the level of decline of our football,” Amiesimaka told NAN.
The former national team player said the NFF must focus on the development of football at the grassroots in order to halt the current slide in the Super Eagles’ performance.
