Golden Eaglets Coach, Manu Garba is worried about the quality of teams that will represent Africa at the 2018 FIFA U-17 World Cup in Uruguay.

Nigeria won the sole ticket to represent West Africa in the Regional qualifiers after beating Ghana 3-1 via penalty shootout.

“Either side deserved to win but unfortunately it is only one ticket,’ he said after the game.

“In the qualification way, I think this is not the best for CAF because West Africa is the strength of African football at youth level,” he added.

“Nigeria have won the world cup the most, five times, Ghana has won it on three occasions. And it is just unfortunate a team like Ghana is missing out. Niger itself and Cote D’ Ivoire are not going to this tournament,”

“I think this zone must head to CAF to change this format because it is not good for West Africa. Honestly,I think Ghana must be there but I will say congratulations to Ghana even in defeat. It was a befitting final.”

CAF recently changed the qualification format to Regional series after which eight teams will emerge for the African Championship in Tanzania.
