If it means there is none, that was a completely true statement....Now, if someone had asked me on that day, are you having any kind of sexual relations with Ms. Lewinsky, that is, asked me a question in the present tense, I would have said no. And it would have been completely true."

Bombshell: Salisu blames NPFL coaches over CHAN Eagles goals drought

January 19, 2018 Adepoju Tobi CHAN Eagles 0

Super Eagles chief coach Salisu Yusuf has blamed Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) coaches, for his team’s lack of goals.

Super Eagles B Team in 2017 played 10 official matches and managed just 12 goals while two matches in 2018 ended goalless with Cameroon and Rwanda.

NPFL top scorer last season Tony Okpotu has struggled in front of goal, likewise Kingsley Eduwo and Stephen Odey struggled for goals in the team before seeking greener pasture.

Ironically, apart from Okpotu in the current CHAN squad, Enyimba International striker Ibrahim Mustapha and Akwa United forward Okechukwu Gabriel have not shown enough quality to lead the team attack.

Salisu spoke with cross section of media in the press conference before the Libya clash on Friday, and blamed the NPFL clubs for low productivity of goals in the national team.

“We cannot be developing players and their weaknesses within a short period of time.

“That, I think is supposed to be the clubs’ role. We just try to bring them together and the longest time we stayed was three weeks in Abuja so you cannot change a player within that period. The national team is not
a club side and we don’t develop players here.

“If you observe the last Super Six we played in Kano, we were the highest goalscoring side. The clubs were not getting the goals still so I think this is one of the fundamental problems of our football in Nigeria that
we’re not producing the strikers we used to produce.

“So I think the solution to the problem has to go back to the clubs, how you develop players based on the positions they play because in the national team, we don’t have that time,” said Salisu.

The game between Libya and Nigeria will kickoff 4.30pm local time (5.30pm).

Main problem are the strikers! They waste too many chances.

The 9ja team is getting better with time but as usual, they had an easy path...
But hey, they are cranking out the results they need. :thumb:
They also have the grit and steel that Libya don't are lacking. :thumbs:
In the end, however, the wisdom of preparing for the worst has its limits when — all things considered — it keeps us from doing what’s best.
