Sofoluwe, popularly called Defence Minister, reiterated that World Cup was not a tournament of semi finals but a Mundial that requires seriousness saying “old-legs ought not to have registered.”

The ex-player who was a guest lecturer at the Africa Retail ‘Shoppers Brunch for football lovers’ stressed that the Eagles should be dominated by aggressive new players who are hungry to play and make a name.

According to him, the old-legs could parade themselves as ambassador if they so wish but not to play in  the mundial saying “there is no doubt, they play very well but not totally tasked for the World Cup.”

“I don’t believe in the old-legs or the so-called international players, I believe in good football that will lead Super Eagles to final.

“World Cup is not a jamboree, is like a war, so Nigeria’s Super Eagles team should comprise of new players who can run; who can attack; players with new ideas. If we continue with the old-legs, we would not make it,” Yisa said.

He gave plausible remarks to Kanu Nwankwo, as he said he’s exposed and a good player to the core, but it’s not a must for him to play South Africa 2010.
