Flying Eagles winger, Kingsley James said the experience he gained with the team will spur him to improve his performances, when he returns back to his base in England.
Kingsley was part of the 25-Man squad to Morocco, for the CAF U20 African Nations Cup, in Egypt.
He hopes to be part of the team to Indonesia at the FIFA U20 World Cup, if the Flying Eagles pick the ticket at the U20 AFCON.
He said the coach of the team, Ladan Bosso told him that he is still part of his plans for the World Cup, adding that he was dropped not because he wasn’t good enough, but because the AFCON needs experienced African players.
"I am happy and grateful to be part of the players that made the 25-man list to Morocco. Making the team to Morocco is a big achievement for me.
"The coach told me that I was dropped not because I am not good enough but because he needs players with African mentality to succeed at the U20 AFCON.
"What I have gained while with the team will spur me to improve my performance when I return back to Europe, and hopefully when Flying Eagles picks the World Cup ticket, I will be part of the team to Indonesia”.
The 21-man Flying Eagles squad left Morocco for Egypt on Thursday, ahead of their first Group A tie with Senegal, on Sunday.
