Your wrong on this one. Only players born 1st January 1997 or later are eligible. That means only Taiwo Awoniyi, Ifeanyi Matthew, Chidere Eze and Zaharadeen Bello will be eligible.
Add Yahaya to the list

I never imagined myself to write on this thread after our loss.

We always be going back to the drawing board and still we aint getting it right.

Still can't understand what has happened in New Zealand
Re: Flying Eagles of Nigeria Thread: U-20 World Cup (New Zealand 2015) by successinlife: 9:36pm On Jun 12, 2015
Believe me or not,our failure in the ongoing U20 world cup is down to two reasons,1.that we lost our first game against Brazil and 2.that Manu Garba boast two much,now let me digress a little.The two reasons point to Garba's indepth knowledge of the game.
Why did we play fast football with Brazil? why don't we try to keep the lead when we were 2-1 up in the first half and just play tactical football and make changes in the second half to boss the midfield and be defense disciplined in the second half? well that is that.
Hence our first game put us in a tight situation of a must win against the Koreans,here i don't have anything to say cause i know with the reserve team in parade or still keep faith with most of the players that played against the Brazilians or even playing our weakest formation we would have won against the Koreans so here i don't want to express anything more.
Against Hungary we blew it up,God,either the god of football or the one our imams and pastors or traditional worshipers believes in put us in a very comfortable position to qualify and also progress and go far in the competition,why did i say so?just a draw or a 0-1 loss would have seen us avoid Germany,we would have qualified as one of the best losers cause fiji lost and we would have qualify and i bet you we would have beaten serbia hands down,in Europe right now,German football is on the rise in all their age grades and they are technically sound,serbia would have been a walk over for our boys,Mr.Garba should have mapped out a draw tactics and make our opponents feels we are not that good so that we can shock them and go far in the competition but Garba keep boasting of winning all the teams to win the cup even after what he saw of the game with Brazil.
Take note,before we met Germany in the last of 16 they've acquired enough information about our darling team cause we pitched our camping tent in Germany and we knew Germany is also playing in the U20,white football technocrats takes just 45 minutes to disect your team strength and weaknesses but we stayed for two weeks selling our tactics to them,why can't we camp in belgium,holland,france or spain?food for thought for you all,all these countries did not qualify and they have very sound youth football teams that could have helped our players to prepare for the task we failed in new zealand.
I have said it again and i am still saying it,Garba should be retained to coach our under 17 because he knows how to spot and enforce the cadet team,when the team graduates to the U20 somebody of SIA1 pedigree is needed,i don't know anybody aside of Siasia sorry,if we can comb out someone to do that it will be ok because i think Siasia is also good for the U23.
Finally in all our games we should brag a little,i am not just saying this,i said this before the competition started that we need to respect our opponents,don't brag,be humble as a coach and see Nigeria teams excel,boasting don't win games rather action on the field of play. The flying eagles exit pained me but it is down to our coach lack of technical knowhow,my happiness is that with proper management this set of boys will go places.God bless the federal republic of Nigeria.

Lol! grin grin grin
We cause it dude!
We overrated the Team and their technical Crew respectively. Anyone who visited the forum for the first time, before the commencement of the Tourney, would be glued to it with the comments and posts!
Many thought the Team is the best in the World, and nothing could stop them from lifting the Trophy in New Zealand, but are overly disappointed in the end!
This thread was a joy to visit, but it has lost its aura, because most Fans do not care about the Lads again!
I think we should diversify the thread; probably be an Avenue to monitor the developments and progress of the Lads, and how they can be transformed to fulfill our expectations of them. We shouldn't lose hope in the Lads, because they genuinely are talented. We should keep the thread alive, discussing and analyzing how a formidable Super Eagles Team could be formed through the majority of the Lads!
Up Eagles!!!
Re: Flying Eagles of Nigeria Thread: U-20 World Cup (New Zealand 2015) by Nobody: 10:19am On Jun 13, 2015
Manu should stick with U20 Team, and start working with Amuneke to discover the hidden talents in Nigeria for the next U17 Tourney!
However many of the U20 Lads; the likes of Awoniyi, Simon, Yahaya, Success, Idowu, Godwin, Bulbwa, Ndidi, Sokari, Muhammad, Nwakali and Ifeanyi Mathew should be promoted to the U23 Team now!
You can add yours, but I guess the remaining ones are flukes and should be discarded!!!
Re: Flying Eagles of Nigeria Thread: U-20 World Cup (New Zealand 2015) by TheSuperNerd(m): 11:05am On Jun 13, 2015
So based on ur list, the remaining ones dat are flukes include Iheanacho, Alampasu, Chidera Ezeh, and even Zaharaddeen Bello.
What in da heavens is Bulbwa and Savior Godwin and even The over hyped Sokari doing on ur list? These 3 names starred against Germany... What did they do Iheanacho, Yahaya and Matthew wud hv offered much much more in dia positions respectively. There are marked distinctions btwn great talents and good talents...

That shows you that success has many friends. See how lonely the thread has become. We overhyped and expected too much from those boys cos they've been winning in since their u17 days without looking at the bigger picture. Not fewer than 9 of our players are still registered with Academy teams. Compare this statistics with the European and South American teams who are already young professionals.
As for the Amunike tutored U17 team, i'm not expecting too much from there. Though the team has good individual players like the captain, Nwakali, the goalkeeper, the no 9 & 11. So i believe they should form the 2017 flying eagles with the likes of Ezeh, Yahaya, Awoniyi, I. Matthew and Bello. To be coached by who? Manu Garba, Amunike and Ugbade. This tourney would've served as an experience for Manu.
My own 2kobo suggestion tho.

Good point.....
I intentionally omitted them from my own list just to see how everyone will react?
omitting Ihenacho will definitely spark a debate which I knew before hand. Thanks dude for mentioning those names!
But what's your take on them being incorporated into the U23 Team? Who among the Lads should make the trip to Rio (if we qualify) ?

Inter Milan have made contact with Udinese over the possible transfer of Nigeria Under 20 international Isaac Success. The youngster who is currently on duty with the Nigerian National U-20 team in New Zealand is on a four-year deal with Udinese and is expected to meet with Club officials to discuss his future after the ongoing World Youth Championship World Cup. But Nigeria have been sent packing after they were pipped 1-0 by Germany in the last-16 knock-out match. The Nigeria youth international has been linked to Ligue 1 moneybags Monaco, but it appears the Italians are frontrunners to secure his signature.

Inter Milan to me doesn't seem like a good place to go, but I'll rather be on the bench of inter milan than on the bench of granada.

Spot on! Best write-up I have read on this thread so far. U've spoken my mind. Those of us that have followed football for so long know things can go horribly wrong. History is replete with teams that flattered to deceive. As u know human love is fickle. If that were to happen the same people praising Manu Garba will come here, bash him and call him tactically inept. And claim that their grand mothers would have done a better a job with talents at his disposal. I'm calling for caution because there's a very thin line btw confidence and over confidence.


Chai! Failure is an orphan. This thread has been deserted. I knew this would happen. We've watched football for more than 2 decades; we've seen these things happen again and again. Winning these kinds of competitions is not aim, developing players for the future is. Maybe this thread should be modified to track the progress of players that constituted 2013 U-17 team/2015 U-20 team. 5 to 10 years down d line if we've 5 to 8 of this players forming the crux of the National team I would still consider Manu's team a success.
