The team has since returned home after winning only a bronze medal at the two-legged event held in the North African country.

But Ndanusa, who was in Tunisia with the players, expressed delight at what he called the vast improvement in the youngsters.

“The result has shown to everybody that we were not just in that country to make up the numbers,” Ndanusa said.

“We shall have more developmental projects which will bring out the best in these youngsters as well as new ones who will complement the already established junior teams,” he added.

The Nigerian Boys’ U-14 star player, Michael Osewa, got to the semi final in the Singles’ event and eventually won bronze.

“I was very happy particularly for the performance and improvement of Michael Osewa who won a bronze medal for us,” national junior tennis coach, Mohammed Ubale, stated.
