Army Chief Salute NFF over Coaches choice for Eaglets

Col. Dominic Nta (rtd) of the Nigerian Army Engineering Corps and erstwhile Chairman of Defence Staff Team has described the choice of the four coaches tinkering with the Golden Eaglets by the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) as ‘absolutely, fantastic.’

Nta, who made his name with the famous Christ the King College (CKC) of Onitsha before starring for the Nigerian Army, said the quartet of Manu Garba, Emmanuel Amuneke, Nduka Ugbade and Emeka Amadi are role models that would ginger the youngsters under their watch to greater heights.

“I think the NFF got it right with the appointments of the coaches for the Golden Eaglets,” noted Nta, a former student and player for the St. Joseph Catholic School of Kaduna in the mid 1950s.

“Football is scientific and inspirational; it gladdens my mind that the NFF brought back these former players to handle these youngsters.”
