In a chat with Completesports.com, the former Wolfsburg striker stated that Bosso’s invitation of players must be devoid of sentiment.
He also believed that the Flying Eagles have the capability to hold their own against some of the big teams at the tournament.
“The FIFA U-20 World Cup should afford Ladan Bosso the opportunity to correct the mistakes he made at the U-20 Africa Cup of Nations, where the team finished third.
“His invitation and selection of players must be on point this time around if he must get a positive result against Brazil, Italy, and the Dominican Republic.”
