Amah who was in between the sticks for the Eagle said he was not surprised at the the U-17 captain’s inclusion in the squad

There was no surprise to see Tijani’s name on the list and I believe he can break through,” Amah told All Nigerian Soccer

Tijani is a very good marker, playing with Etebo and the likes of Ndidi, the midfield will be stable now, that I can assure.” he added

Olaniyan who was part of the U-17 squad affirmed that Tijani will add some new to the squad.

I think he’s going to bring a breath of fresh air, he’s a young boy that wants to do well for himself, for his family and for the country,he talked much about the Red Bull Salary lonee

He’s going to bring that personality, that zeal and that enthusiasm of being young, so he’s going to fit in perfectly, I am sure he’s going to improve the team,” he emphasized.
