You Can’t Watch This Team And Not Notice Him- Super Eagles Coach Peseiro Raves Over Nigeria U20 Defender

The Nigeria U20 team secured passage to the semi final of the U20 Africa Cup of Nations which is currently taking place in Egypt after a 2-1 win over Uganda in yesterday’s quarter final game.

Nigeria secured passage to the World Cup courtesy of that win over Uganda and will now take on Gambia in the semi final but some players have already made a huge impression on the coach of the senior national team of Nigeria Jose Peseiro.

Peseiro is in Egypt watching the tournament and have already penciled down four players who he intends to add to the training of the senior national team of Nigeria, when they take on Guinea Bissau in the Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers late this month.

One player that wasn’t originally included in the list of four is Benjamin Frederick but the Simoiben Academy graduate has played his way into the heart of the coach and could take one of the spots reserved for Daniel Daga, Daniel Bamaiyi, Onuche Ogbelu and Olamilekan Adams or better still join them in the training camp.

” He has been raving about Frederick. There is no way you will watch us play and not notice him. Peseiro spoke highly about him especially his football intelligence. What most people don’t know is that he has been playing through his pain barrier in all but the opening game”, a backroom staff told OGN.

” To us as the crew on the team, we feel proud that we have unearthed a player who could go on and become a super star in the future. He has played ever games with a consistency of a seasoned pro. He isn’t even a month old in professional football”, he rounded up saying.
