Coach Nesin also believes that if given the Flying Eagles job as the Head coach or Assistant, he will put every player on the path to achieve greatness.
“If I was the Coach or Assistant, one of the first things I will do is to try to get everyone on the same page, all the coaches will sit down and meet, discuss with the technical director or whoever is in control and get a clear responsibility to identify what we want to get out of each age-group team, our expectations and how we plan to achieve the expectations.
“We know we can win the World Cup if the players have the discipline and get a proper transition through the age grades.
“I will focus on getting the coaches together on same page and executing the strategy together, with a unique style,” he said
