FC Ifeanyi Ubah chairman, Dr Ifeanyi Ubah has advised the Super Eagles Technical Adviser, Genort Rohr to avoid the pressure of selecting players for this year’s Africa cup of Nations billed for the Nation of Egypt on sentiment, stressing that only fit and informed players should make the final 23 man list.

Ubah who disclosed this when a delegation of the Sports Online Association of Nigeria, SOPAN visited him, noted that this year’s edition of the bi-annual Africa soccer fiesta would be tougher for the Super Eagles as other Africa countries are getting stronger.

“Football has become a very competitive trend globally now. Everybody wants to make a name for himself. If we (the Eagles) have proper selection for the Africa Cup of Nations and we also have determination from the players to conquer then there is no harm in saying we (Nigeria) will go far in the competition.

“We must also have it in our mind that Other African countries are also working hard the way our team is also working hard. So we should not sleep over any successes that we have recorded in the last few years as a template for us to achieve our aims in 2019 AFCON in Egypt.

“So my own input is that we must work hard, keep the right selection and remove partiality in our selection of players for this year’s AFCON”, the Distinguished Senator of the Federal Republic of Nigeria disclosed to NationSport in Abuja yesterday.
