_Says Pillars will Play all Games like Finals
On the back of naming eight NPFL players in Nigeria's list for international friendlies against Mexico and Ecuador, Super Eagles Assistant Coach, Salisu Yusuf has lifted the lid on the invitations.
Yusuf said he actually named ten players from the league for the game but it had to be trimmed down to eight.
He said "I actually submitted a 10-man list of NPFL players but because of the number if invitations we had to drop two. I always believe because I'm in the league and I see players every week. I think if the players are given a chance, they'd compete very well with the foreign based".
Sharing his thoughts on the chance of Kano Pillars getting relegated, Coach Salisu Yusuf said the team will approach every remaining league game like a final.
"PIllars is a traditional team and we have a great history. We will fight for every game like we are playing a final to see that we escape the drop".
