Meanwhile, his compatriot, Kelechi Nwakali who captained the Nigerian side at Chile, having been voted as the player of the tournament is reportedly on his way to join Kelechi Iheanacho’s Manchester City. Other players on the team are also reportedly being chased for their signatures by other top European clubs.
During a telephone chat with Naij.com Sports, Obuh who managed the Nigerian U20 team between 2010 and 2013 revealed that the boys should return to the local league to enable them mature and then graduate to the U20 level.
He said: “The boys have really tried and they surpassed expectations. I just hope they will not rush to foreign clubs. They should learn from their predecessors.
“Infact they should return to the local league, where they will graduate to the Under020 category; by then, they would have been matured.”
However, expectations are high on the team who just did Nigeria and entire Africa proud by conquering the world. Many Nigerians are hopeful that the bulk of the team would mature into the Super Eagles and conquer the world at the Qatar 2022 FIFA world cup.
