Why Ugbade Should Remain As Golden Eaglets Coach —Ikhana
Veteran Nigerian coach Kadiri Ikhana has said Nduka Ugbade should remain as Golden Eaglets handler.
The Eaglets failed to qualify for this year’s World Cup after losing to Burkina Faso in the quarter-finals of the CAF U-17 AFCON.
The team beat Zambia 1-0 in their first game but lost 1-0 to Morocco in their second fixture.
However, a hard fought 3-2 win against South Africa saw them progress into the last eight before losing to Burkina Faso.
Despite the team’s failure to qualify for the World Cup Ikhana, who led Enyimba to the 2003 CAF Champions League title, believes Ugbade should continue with the team.
“Ugbade has won the World Cup before with the U-17 and he has been with the team for years,” Ikhana said on Brila FM’s Sports Machine. “I think he should be given another opportunity to be with the team.
“His Ugbade a good coach? playing up to the quarter-finals, I don’t think the coach has done badly.“
Meanwhile, Senegal will take on Morocco in the final of the U-17 AFCON.
The Senegalese edged Burkina Faso on penalties after regulation time ended 1-1.
Also, Morocco went through to the final after overcoming Mali via penalty shootout following a goalless draw.
