Nigeria: World Cup 2002. From Amodu to Onigbinde, any hope for Nigerian soccer?

13/05/2002, On the 31st of May, 2002, thirty-two countries will begin a competition to determine who wins the World Cup, a trophy to determine the best footballing nation in the world so to say. While Nigeria will be adequately represented there as one of the five qualifiers from the African continent, it is still searching for the twenty-three or so footballers that will represent the country following the sacking of its coaching staff led by Shuaibu Amodu and the team that represented it in the Africa Nations Cup 2002 tournament in Mali in January. The replacement of the coaching staff by a new coach led by Festus Adegboye Onigbinde and disbandment of the team following the not too good performance by those who played for Nigeria in Mali has made it mandatory that a new set of footballers must be recruited to prosecute the World Cup. The question that followers of Nigerian soccer ask is: will these measures change the fate of Nigerian soccer which is in itself suffering from a lot of teething problems at home thereby forcing many brilliant youths with bright prospects in the game to seek greener pastures elsewhere?
