Babayaro – Super Eagles Without Enyeama, Mikel, Ighalo, Moses Is An “Ordinary Team”
Former Nigeria international defender Celestine Babayaro says the senior national team of Nigeria don’t strike fear into the mind of opposing teams anymore.
Babayaro said the departure of four key players in Vincent Enyeama, Mikel Obi, Odion Ighalo and Victor Moses has left the team without any player who strikes fear into the mind of opponents.
“ It’s not what it use to be anymore. Few years ago during the World Cup qualifiers you can see that opponents turned up for games against Nigeria with concerns over some big name players”, he told OwnGoalNigeria.com in an exclusive chat.
“ The departure of Enyeama, Mikel, Ighalo and Moses has left the team with no real leader who carries a fear factor. At the moment they have talented players but they lack players who strike fear into the mind of opponents”, he remarked.
Speaking further he said other team now sees them as a very ordinary team that they can beat if they go toe to toe against them due to the lack of top level player who can decide games on their own.
“ When you don’t have players who can produce moment of magic in tight games then the team is ordinary. I see the Super Eagles of now as an ordinary team”, he conceded.
