Nwakali not in hurry for Euro move


Despite rumours in various media outlets over an impending move to the Barclays Premier League in the winter transfer season, victorious Golden Eaglets captain, Kelechi Nwakali, has reassured that he is going to give his next career move a proper thought before arriving at a decision.

“I want to go back home, so that we can reflect on what we’ve accomplished, and then I’ll give some thought to my next career move,” Nwakali hinted.

The ASJ Academy midfielder stressed that he would not forget in a hurry the semi-final match against Mexico. “Mexico were our most difficult opponents. I thought their two forwards, the No 9 (Eduardo Aguirre) and No 10 (Claudio Zamudio), were very good players. They really gave us the run-around,” the ebony-dark midfielder recalled.

“Playing in the final is the dream of every young player. To play in a World Cup final and win the trophy is amazing. Not just winning it, but defending it,” he said.

Nigeria will now turn its focus to India 2017 to try to win the cadet World Cup for a third consecutive time.
