Daniel Amokachi moaned about the negative impact players movement abroad has had on Nigeria’s preparation for the African Nations Championship (Chan).

The Super Eagles assistant coach decried the fact that most of players that qualified Nigeria for a maiden appearance in the competition are no longer available for selection, as they have moved abroad in search of greener pastures.

While hailing the competitiveness of the players in camp, Amokachi lamented the fact that the team has had to undergo a major overhauling within a short period of time.

“About 80 per cent of the players we started with if not more have gone,” Amokachi lamented.

“But these new sets are giving us hope that Nigeria is always blessed with talented footballers.”

Amokachi has been in charge of the team in the absence of coach Stephen Keshi who is expected to arrive later today.
