The coach chorused that he would love to take up other challenges in his career, he however feels he has done his bit for the Team.

“I have been in this category for years and to be honest I am not interested in continuing with the under-17s, we have to be honest with ourselves, one has to move forward and I am looking forward to the next challenge.

“We will see what the future brings,” he told Nigeria Info FM.

Amunike was the assistant coach to Manu Garba who led Nigeria to win the U-17 FIFA world cup in Dubai in 2013. He later on took over from Manu Garba.

Meanwhile, Nigeria became only the second side to retain the FIFA U-17 World Cup with a 2-0 win against Mali in Vina Del Mar, with Victor Osimhen scoring his record-breaking tenth goal of Chile 2015.

Nigeria’s Golden Eaglets battled Mali in the final of the 2015 FIFA U-17 World Cup. The Eaglets have never lost to an African nation in the tournament.
