CHAN: Every player must earn his shirt, Yusuf declares
As preparations hot up for the Super Eagles team B ahead of the CAF African Nations Championship, coach Salisu Yusuf has warned his regular players to brace up for a fight to justify their place in the team to the tournament starting in Morocco January 13.
Yusuf Yusuf stated that he was out to present a solid team that will see new faces combining with some of the players who qualified the team for the tournament and also won silver at the last West Africa Football Union Nations Cup in Ghana.
“Every player will have to work hard to make the team to Morocco”, Salisu stated.
“And I’m sure the players know this. “That you featured at the WAFU Nations Cup is not a ticket to Morocco.
“So far, their attitude and commitment have been impressive and I’m happy about that”. The home Super Eagles are now in Abuja to step up their preparation for their third consecutive CHAN finals after the NPFL Invitational Tournament in Kano.
