Daniel Amokachi, Coach home-based Super Eagles shares his views why he was not impressed with the performance of his team as they showed signs of heaviness even though Super Eagles thrashed FCT League side NYSC 5-2 on Monday, Africanfootball.com reports
Amokachi added that more work needed to be done before the team departed for friendlies against Cote d’Ivoire and Sudan in Abu Dhabi.
“If you concede such an early goal against an experienced side like Cote d’ Ivoire you will be in trouble because you will have to chase the game all day,” he said.
Here’s the Goal Summary detailed below:
The NYSC side drew the first blood in only the second minute of the match when number 10 shirted Nwowu Ikenna, sleek dribbles in the Eagles vital area ended on the legs of teammate, Omefe Ifeanyi, who did a ‘thank you very much’, by slotting home from close range.
The goal jolted the national team to reality and four minutes later hotshot, Mfom Udoh equalised after Gambo Mohammed’s beautiful run from the right fell to him.
But the NYSC team will not let go, as they again took the lead through Eugene Utom in the sixth minute after another defensive mix-up that forced Amokachi to pull out experienced defender, Azubuike Egwuekwe, who was apparently the culprit of the gaps noticed in the backline.
The Eagles seemed to wake up after that change with Nelson Ogbonna curtailing the excesses of the NYSC strikers, while teen sensation Kingsley Sokari alias ‘Bobby’ equalised in the 18th minute with a neatly struck goal.
Sokari added his second of the day in the 21st minute after a neat interchange of passes with inform Heartland winger Stanley Dimgba.
Two minutes to the end of the first half, Udoh got also his second of the day, after Gambo had done the hard part of the job. The first half thus ended 4-2.
