In his quiet moments, as he looks to lead his young side into Sunday's FIFA under-17 World Cup final against Mali, Nigeria coach Emmanuel Amunike must surely reflect on the virtues of fortitude.

Appointed in the middle of 2014, Amunike had barely settled into the job before he was compelled to address accusations of bribery as he began his journey down the long road that has brought him to this point.

As if that was not enough, when he did finally name his 21-man squad, other problems popped up...
