The one-time technical crew of Liverpool John Moore University, United Kingdom to the 2006 World University Game in Japan said that the Nigerian team are balance side , because the players have the strength, skills and speed to withstand  pressure from any team and launch occasionally counter attack against their opponents

Warwick, a former utility player with El-Kanemi Warriors of Maiduguri, Nigeria, FC Porto of Portugal, Saint Entiente of France expressed concern over what he described as poor finishing of attackers in the team.

The Apostle of developmental football however blamed the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) for not doing enough to  develop football in the country 

"The Ibrahim Musa Gusau led NFF should visit the stadium of the Nigeria Premier Football League side, Remo Stars Football Club in the Ikenne-Remo and see how they are developing the round leather game through their academy " Beyond Limit "

"NFF should also study the developmental programmes of Senegalese football federation and see how they are making progress with their football from under 17 to under 20 and recent achievements of the country , winning CAF Competitions at both levels

Warwick insisted that the development of football should be seen as a serious business, recalling how great talented players were discovered in the 70s and 80s from schools through academical Competitions for the national teams

He added that NFF should stop blaming the coaches for failure and do the right thing at the right time to develop football at the grasssroots and stop going for ready made players discovered in Europe
