Local Eagles not good for World Cup- NFA former chairman


A former chairman of the Nigeria Football Association (NFA), Anthony Kojo-Williams has slammed Coach Stephen Keshi for considering taking four local Eagles to the World Cup in Brazil. He said that the players had neither international standard nor anything to offer.

Mr Kojo-Williams said, “These players have no international standard. They are not polished and have nothing to offer. As far as I am concerned, there are better players in the league. Maybe we can talk about Ejike Uzoenyi. Maybe he can be considered but the rest are not good for the flight to Brazil. I wonder where Keshi brought them from.”

“Look at that goalkeeper (Agbim) who was jumping about and conceding cheap goals. He was an embarrassment to us. The others also did not fare better. And your coach is thinking of taking some of them to World Cup. They are going to Brazil to do what? They will fail and it will be our shame”, he stressed.

He added, “Keshi should go scouting for better players in the league because we surely have better players in our league than these jokers we took to South Africa.”
