Amuneke hails Sokoto fans

Published by The Nation on Fri, 13 Feb 2015

Former Super Eagles winger and 1994 African Footballer of the Year, Emmanuel Amunke, who is in charge of the national U-17 team, the Golden Eaglets, was full of praise for the passionate Sokoto football fans after his team thrashed Fasbir Integrated Football Academy in a 4-1 win at the Giginya Memorial Stadium in Sokoto on Wednesday.Amuneke was visibly impressed with the massive turnout of the fans at the stadium to witness the Eaglets play their last warm up match before the tournament proper, Niger 2015.First and foremost, we want to thank the people of Sokoto for their hospitality and support to us since the first day we arrived here, Amuneke stated.Our appreciations also go to the Sultan, the government and ordinary fans who are wishing us well as we travel to Niger for the African Under-17 championship.Speaking further, Amuneke said the youngsters of Fasbir Academy have nothing to be ashamed of because they put up a brave performance against the Niamey-bound Golden Eaglets.Personally, Im taking some positives from this match since it allowed us to see how much we have adapted to the weather in Sokoto, which is almost the same as what we are going to meet in Niamey, he noted.I must also commend Fasbir because this is about the best academy we have played. I dont want to single out a particular player but collectively, I like them because this is what a model academy should be.Meanwhile, the Golden Eaglets consisting of 21 players and 10 officials would depart Sokoto for Niamey on Thursday, to seek glory at the 11th African U-17 Championship slated to hold between February 15 and March 1.The post Amuneke hails Sokoto fans appeared first on The Nation.]]>
