Youths Sports Federation of Nigeria )YSFON) has joined millions of Nigerians in mourning former Super Eagles coaches, Shuiabu Amodu and Stephen Keshi,  describing their demise as not only shocking but devastating.
In a statement issued by the body and signed by its National President, Yusuf Gawuna, the Federation noted that with their death, Nigerian football has lost two great men whose contributions to the development of the national team cannot be quantified.
He stressed their sadness with the news of the demise of the two coaches who at one time or the other handled the national team and contributed to its growth.
According to the Commissioner for Agriculture in Kano State, “so saddening that the two deaths came within three days from each other and we at YSFON are yet to overcome the shock”.
Gawuna stated that, Amodu will always be remembered as a four-time handler of the Super Eagles who qualified the country two times for the World Cup while Keshi on the other hand won the Africa Nations Cup both as a player and coach which was an impeccable achievement.
The statement noted further that the vacuum created by their death will be very difficult to fill, prayed that God in His infinite mercy will grant their souls eternal life and give those they left behind the fortitude to bear the irreplaceable loss.
