Fashanu – Nigeria Are Irrelevant In World Football

Published

on

Ex -England striker revealed that Nigeria has lost their wait in world soccer and admit the country is irrelevant because of their low achievement in international competitions

Super eagles having failed to qualify for Gabon/Equatorial Guinea 2012 after ending in a 2-2 draw against Guinea with goals from Ikechukwu Uche and Victor Obinna, also missing out of the competition twice in a row 2015, and 2017.

Fashanu speaks on how the nation neglected the development of grassroots football

Speaking to Goal.com he said:

“We ask ourselves where are the potentials? Where are the Jay Jays, Kanu and the Fashanus – where are they?”

“They are not coming out now. Sometimes you need to take one step back to move forward.

“Because right now there are a lot of potentials but there is no international quality we need to breakthrough.

“And if it is not there, we are surely not going to get recognition. What do we rank now? The ranking of Nigeria is currently between 50 to 60 in the world.

“I’m sorry to say that we are irrelevant. And when it comes to football we should be right up there in the top 15 to 20.

“We want to see some of the potentials and let’s not keep calling it potentials but let’s see some stuff come back again.”
