WHY I WEPT FOR DREAM TEAM -UCHECHI
England-based Nigerian winger, Daniel Uchechi, has explained that his prolonged weeping after the Dream Team V's first two matches in the CAF Under-23 Olympic Games qualifier championship in Morocco proved that the team could not pick the Olympic ticket.
Speaking with Daily Sunsports in an exclusive interview after the victory over Algeria, the Sheffield Wednesday's attacker noted that though the players missed the services of other foreign-based teammates, he wept because he knew that the players that executed the championship were equally good.
He further expressed worries over the problem of Nigerian football, admitting that having done everything humanly possible with his teammates, they could not put their hands on where their problems were, confessing that he was overwhelmed by the emotions.
'I wept because I don't know where our problem was coming from.
'It was hard to believe that having done everything on and off the pitch, we could not win our first two games. I don't know what was happening to Nigerian football.
'We had a good team and a good coach, but we couldn't explain what happened to us. Luck was not on our side in the first two games.
'When you try to find out what went wrong in those matches but could not see, it would be difficult to resist the tears.
'The situation was very unfortunate,' Uchechi noted.
