Bewarang, who spoke to allnigeriasoccer.com, said people are complaining that certain players were not invited from the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) for the camp in France’s but defended those who were invited, saying they are one of the best crops Nigeria can boast of from home front.
Bewarang also said Nigerians must understand that the coach is trying to get a very strong national team in place ahead of qualifiers for the 2019 Africa cup of Nations finals in Cameroon and the 2018 world cup finals in Russia.
He insisted that those clamouring for more home base players in the national team must understand that Nigeria’s best legs are based overseas and not home, saying the quality of home base Players in the 1980s and the 1990s are different from the quality of players ply their trade in the home front.
