Former Nigerian midfielder Garba Lawal insists the Super Eagles was the only national team that impressed in 2019.
The Super falcons, home based Super Eagles, Dream Team VII, Flying Eagles and Golden Eaglets all failed woefully in 2019.
However, Garba who was a key member of Atlanta 96 Olympics gold medal winning team is however optimistic that 2020 will be a better year for Nigerian football.
“For me it was a fantastic year for Nigerian football except for the junior teams who did not do well.
“That’s football for you, it is always full of ups and downs and I know the Nigeria Football Federation is not happy with what happened.
“Like I said, that’s football, if you don’t lose you wouldn’t know that there are problems just like what we saw with the junior teams.
“Let’s hope things will be good for our football in 2020.” he said.
