Former Super Eagles coach, Augustine Eguavoen, has said he is confident that the 2017 Future Champions Gauteng Cup tournament will serve as a learning experience for the team.
Eguavoen led the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) All-Stars Under-17 team to a Silver Medal at the Future Champions Gaunteng international tournament in Johannesburg.
In an exclusive interview with Channels Television in Johannesburg, Eguavoen said the team deserves commendation as they got to know each other within nine days in camp.
