The head coach of the Iranian U-17 side, Ali Doustimehr has congratulated the Golden Eaglets over their qualification for the quarter final of the ongoing FIFA cadet World Cup in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) but has raised dust on their ages.

“The Eaglets were the better side. I am happy with FIFA for bringing up such tournament which has helped
to ensure peace and friendship among the youths of the world. I have been in this job for over 30 years and I have been coaching the National team for 20 years. The way the Eaglets played today (yesterday) and in their matches showed that they can’t be teenagers but if they are truly within the age bracket, it shows that Nigeria will have a very strong national team in the future.

“I didn’t say that they are overage but if they truly Under 17 I wish them luck. My players are young and inexperienced and it counted against Nigeria,” Doustimehr admitted in a press conference after the match.

However, Eaglets’ Head Coach, Manu Garba has threatened to drag Doustimehr to FIFA if he doesn’t withdraw the statement credited to him.

I beg leave dat mumu coach of Iran. I think after so many years of watching Nigerian junior team, these guys are really very very young and talented. For the first time in my life I thumb up for NFF for a very good selection of young boys to represent our country. I watched their match in Dubai and I'm proud to be a Nigerian. Up Naija!

Just seeing this comments makes me lose hope in Naija.That is why our leaders would continue to do as they like,because ppl see the truth but never like to accept it.Change ur mentality,change Naija.

Mr. Coach, the Nigerian players were good because of training and conditioning.
