Eagles Seek Creative Attacking Midfielder

OKOCHAThe Nigeria Super Eagles is at it again, after the Brazil 2014 FIFA world cup, seeking for a creative attacking midfielder in the mould of former Super Eagles captain Jay-Jay Okocha. This is due to the lackluster performance of Mikel Obi in the just concluded Brazil 2014 FIFA world cup.

Nigeria had never lacked creative attacking midfielders in the history of Nigeria’s soccer, those were the good old days, when thing were done accordingly, not selecting players due to sentiment.

Players were picked from schools competitions, that informed the availability of players like Richard Owukiri, Adokiye Amiesemeka and couple of them. And the national soccer team was in song in the lips of Nigerians and Africans at larger.

The likes of Kanu Nwankwo, Victor Ikpeba were discovered from schools. Today the story is different.

The national football team is a common ground for all who merit to don the country colour to feature according to merit, no one player hold a jersey too long except you are extremely good to maintain that position for a longer time.

It is too shameful that the exist of Onazi exposed Nigeria lack of combative midfielder in France Verse Nigeria group 16 match.

Let the truth be told, Nigeria is blessed with football talents and could not at any given time cry or lack creative, combative attacking midfielders, if our coaches look inward and across the nation.

Okocha was discovered from Nigeria, Finidi George and others were discovered from the Nigeria premier league, and they served the nation judiciously in a much more longer time before attracting offers from foreign clubs. The search for creative combative attacking midfielders should be on now, from the Nigeria Professional Football League to the foreign leagues. Nigeria has many creative combative attacking midfielders for harvesting. ###
