Former international, Obinna Nsofor has expressed his confidence that the Super Eagles will come out victorious against the Lone Stars of Sierra-Leone on Tuesday.
In a chat with the former Inter Milan forward, the disappointing 4-4 draw on Friday is a wake-up call for the team to win on Tuesday.
“It was a disappointing game where we were leading by 4 goals to end the game 4-4. As a fan and as a former Super Eagles player, I was sad. I know the pains most of the players are passing through.
“The whole country is disappointed as they expected them to win comfortably but this is football where anything can happen.
“It is a wake-up for the team to know that no team can be underrated nowadays. I am confident the Super Eagles will win on Tuesday in Freetown,” he said.
Nsofor further stated that the Rohr’s decision to overlook local-based players is intentional.
“It is laughable that he will say there are no good local players for the national team. He is not willing to go round the nation and get the players.
“Just take a look at Keshi’s period. Was it not home-based players that drove the team to success? Was it not Sunday Mba, a home-based player that scored the winning goal? he asked.
Super Eagles will be looking to maintain its grip on Group L when they play the reverse fixture on Tuesday in Freetown.
