A Polytechnic don, Dr Charles Obichere, has given a pat on the back to the Super Eagles for their 3-0 bashing of Seychelles in Saturday’s AFCON 2019 qualifier, but was however quick to add that he wants to see more fireworks from the team.
Obichere while reacting to the victory in a chat with NewsReporters.ng stated:
“Good score, but I wasn’t too impressed with the team’s standard of play.”
On the call up extended to the home lands ahead of Tuesday’s international friendly against Liberia in Monrovia, Obichere stated that it is good Gernot Rohr is looking in the direction of those plying their trade in the nation’s domestic league.
“The invited players list is good but he (Rohr) has to make the very best of selection for the starting lineup. Coherence is of necessity to arrive at good blending,” he stated.
The soccer loving image maker of the nation’s fastest growing Polytechnic, The Federal Polytechnic Nekede ,Owerri, Imo State, while also commending Enyimba for their fine run in the CAF Confederation Cup, said with the home return of the People’s Elephants, they are now in good stead to win the cup for the country.
“Enyimba has a fine arena now and I believe that would propel them into winning the CAF Confederation Cup for Nigeria.”
It would be noted that the Enyimba trio of goalkeeper Ikechukwu Ezenwa ,skipper Mfom Udoh and Sunday Adetunji are on the list of the five home lads Rohr called up for the friendly against Liberia. FC Ifeanyiubah’s Adeleye Olamilekan and Lobi Stars’ Ebube Duru are the other two players on the list.
