The Nigeria Football Federation has charged the National Under- 23 team Coach Imama Amapakabo to the West Africa Football Union (WAFU) tournament holding in Senegal between October 28th – 13th, to restore confidence back to Nigerians after his disappointing outing in Lome, Togo where the CHAN Eagles were humiliated 4 – 1 in the 1st leg Africa Nations Championship qualifier.
According to our source at the NFF technical Department, the WAFU Cup will determine a lot of things either for the coach to remain with the glasshouse or not as the competition which has no age limit will be used in to select the best and most experienced players against Togo in the return leg of CHAN.
“Frankly that scoreline was embarrassing and the coach has admitted that he made some technical blunders. This WAFU tournament is a very good opportunity to do the needful because Nigeria can’t afford to be in Cameroon for the CHAN championship. NFF will not give any coach ultimatum for any competition but the coach should know that his job will be on the line.
