Amokachi eyes WAFU Cup

Home-based Eagles

Daniel Amokachi, Super Eagles team B coach, has said that he would work on the tactical and technical lapses of his team to ensure they win the ongoing WAFU nations cup.

The tournament tagged “Gateway 2010“ holding at both MKO International Stadium, Abeokuta and Gateway International Stadium, Ijebu-Ode is gradually winding up.

Amokachi said he was impressed with the performance of his players, stressing that the ultimate was to lift the cup.
He said part of the plan was why he rested some of his players for the cracker against Senegal on Tuesday, which ended 2-1.

“I know it is not going to be easy but we will take the game as it comes because we do not want to put anything at stake,“ Amokachi said.

On the issue of promoting players to the senior team, Amokachi declined, saying that he was not in any position to do that.

“My job is to help players to play well but it is left for the NFF to judge and for Lagerback to make decisions on any player that he wants in the senior team,” he said.

He, however, said that he was banking on some of his boys if given proper training and necessary exposure to do the country proud in the future.

WAFU Cup has been a harvest of goals for the Super Eagles as they top  Group A with 11 goals and nine points followed by Senegal with five goals and six points which gave both the semi-final ticket.

Super Eagles will clash with Burkina Babes of Burkina Faso in a semi-final encounter on Friday at the MKO Abiola International Stadium, Abeokuta.
