AFCON 2013 Winner Blast Super Eagles Players- They Don’t Seem To Care, Some Are Not Good Enough
The performances of players of the senior national team of Nigeria hasn’t been the best lately and it has no doubt raised a whole lot of concerns, especially as they are looking to bounce back from the disappointment of missing out on the spot at the recently concluded World Cup in Qatar.
Nigeria suffered a heavy 0-4 loss to Portugal in their last friendly game before the World Cup. That results means they have lost all four of their friendly games they have played under new coach Jose Peseiro. They have won just two of the games he has handled the team.
The wins came against Sierra Leone (2-1) and Sao Tome and Principe (10-0) respectively in the AFCON qualifiers. Ironically the both games are the only competitive games they have played under Peseiro. They will be back in action in March.
Ahead of the return, former Nigeria international Sunday Mba, who scored the lone goal against Burkina Faso that handed the AFCON 2013 title to Nigeria has launched a scathing attack on the players presently in the team.
Mba made his feeling known during an interview session with another ex Nigeria international in Ifeanyi Udeze who now works as a radio presenter for Brila FM. He called out the players lackluster attitude and even said some of them are not in the team on merit. The interview was conducted in pidgin English, below is the quote as translated by our editorial team.
“Our Super Eagles are not making us happy. This team is playing like they don’t care about the national team. Some of them do not deserve to be in the team and some do not merit the games they are playing”, he stated.
“I doubt how they get selected. They don’t play entertaining or captivating football and they get you disappointed when you watch them”, he rounded up saying.
