Ex-NFF Chairman Says CHAN Eagles Not Good Enough.

A former Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) boss, Kojo Williams, has said none of the 2014 CHAN Eagles players are not good enough for the Brazil FIFA World Cup.

Head-coach Stephen Keshi has hinted that Ejike Uzoenyi and three other players from the squad could “make it to the World Cup”.

Speaking on Inspiration FM Lagos, Williams said: “They are not the best in the Nigeria Premier League for last season, there are plenty of quality players in the league compared to those that Keshi took to the CHAN in South Africa. He will be making a big mistake to take any of those players to World Cup”.

Williams became chairman of the NFF in 1999 and was impeached three months after.

The coach Keshi-led squad came third in their debut campaign at the African Nations Championship (CHAN) held in South Africa.

Players like Uzoenyi (3 goals), Rabiu Ali (3 goals), Kunle Odunlami were singled out by the organisers of the tournament, as they were included in the tournament’s best 11 while Ranger international forward Uzoenyi was named the Most Valuable Player.
