With the short notice he took over the team for a high profile football competition AFCON calls for commendation because of his thirst for success in service of his fatherland and the kind of confidence he instilled on the boys went a long way to give the apex football governing body in the country to extend his stay as interim technical adviser and the formidable pair with former U-17 and U-20 sweat merchant, Emmanuel Amuneke would give Nigerian players wide technical backup as the March 23, Qatar 2022 World Cup final-off dangles,” he narrated.
