And speaking with npfl.ng Eguavoen said: “Nigerian playing in any of the leagues in the country can get a chance to play for the national team.

“I have seen about two or three games, the standard is high, officiating is good.

“Once players get information that I will be around, not just me, a couple of my colleagues are also watching other matches, it gives them a lot of hope and thinking they will get a chance one day.”

Following his re-appointment as Eagles’ interim coach, the former Nigeria international is saddled with the responsibility of qualifying the Eagles for this year’s World Cup in Qatar.
