A large portion of our players become neediness ridden after they have played so hard for this country. No one thinks about them and it ought not to be. A national saint ought to be a national legend for eternity. Be that as it may, in Nigeria, the invert is the situation. We don’t deal with our legends, who buckled down for the nation. This is the reason a significant number of them would prefer not to play for Nigeria.
At the point when some of them play for Nigeria, they would prefer not to play with full responsibility since when they get harmed, that is the end for them. We don’t need this sort of custom that individuals won’t have any desire to guard our country to proceed. Indeed, even the ones that relinquished themselves to come and play for Nigeria, they are doing in at their very own hazard.
How would you figure this can be handled?
We have to put more in our players for them to be urged to play energetically. We lose a ton of matches in light of the dread of getting harmed without protection. Abroad, the nation deals with them yet Nigerian players deal with themselves.
