Former flying Eagles coach, John Obuh, says he is proud of three former Golden Eagles players in the Brazil-bound Super Eagles.
Obuh told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Calabar on Monday that the performances of Ogenyi Onazi, Kenneth Omeruo and Ahmed Musa were a thing of joy for him.
“These were my players when I coached the national U-17 team in 2009. I am happy that they eventually made it to the Super Eagles. I am proud of them,’’ he said.
“I feel so happy. I feel so happy. At least, Kenneth Omeruo is there, Onazi is there and Ahmed Musa is there.
“It’s so wonderful and I believe that more of them will still be there. It’s just a question of time.
“It’s because I know the people I have. I know them, even when some of them are not yet called, I’m sure with time they will call them.’’
Obuh, who also managed the National U-20 team, said he was optimistic more players from the 2009 squad would eventually play for the Super Eagles.
He said the Super Eagles’ qualification for the 2014 World Cup had lifted the spirit of Nigerian sports lovers and restored their confidence in the senior national team.
