EMMANUEL AMUNIKE TO TAKE OVER FLYING EAGLES

Amuneke2Former Golden Eaglets coach Emmanuel Amunike has been promoted to coach the Nigeria U-20 team by the Nigeria Football Federation while it remained silent on the fate of the team’s coach Manu Garba.

The NFF ratified the promotion of Amunike to the Flying Eagles in a communiqué after its executive board meeting held on Tuesday.

Amunike led the Golden Eaglets to win the U-17 World Cup in Chile last year and was handed a chance to progress with his wards to the U-20 level.

He was named African Footballer of the Year in 1994 and will hope to qualify the Flying Eagles to the 20th U-20 Africa Cup of Nations in Zambia next year.
