Super Eagles chief coach Salisu Yusuf has picked Katsina United stars Ashadi Destiny and Timothy Danladi after watching ‘The Changi Boys’ hold hosts Lobi Stars to a goalless draw in Makurdi Sunday.
Yusuf is in charge of the CHAN Eagles and he is now scouting for players for the qualifiers in August for the 2018 championship against either Benin or Togo.
“I have penciled down Katsina’s Destiny, who wore jersey No 10, and central defender Timothy Danladi, who sported jersey No 5,” Yusuf disclosed.
“Destiny was impressive in midfield to make Katsina United the better team on the day.
“He reminds me of Ifeanyi Matthew because he knows what to do at any point in time of the game, when to dribble, when to make the square pass.
“While the central defender (Danladi) was simply unbeatable on the day.
“I have followed him since when he trained with the Nigeria Olympic team last year.
“I will continue to monitor these players to know their consistency.”
The Eagles coach further said he hopes to watch next weekend’s CAF Champions League matches involving Rangers and Rivers United in continuation of his scouting mission for the Eagles.
