Naming the final list quite difficult – Paul Aigbogun


The head coach of U 20 team coach Paul Aigbogun spoke exclusively to after he released the 21 man list of U 20 world cup.


Making the list was quite difficult because so many of players actually gave a good account of themselves in training sessions and matches played during the course of ongoing camping, but we can not take everyone of them to the tournament.

I felt the pain of some of them who has been in the team for long but they did nit make the list that is football for you.

We just have to go with the best we have and consider some players who can function effectively in two three positions which is a major plus going into a tournament of the magnitude that, you have a limited players in the bench only 21 players made the cut , taking out three keepers you have only 18 players to fixture throughout the tournament .

You need to be meticulous with selection process which is what we did. The gaffer concluded we will present a worthy team of future for Nigeria.
