Eguavoen wants more from attackers

Despite scoring five times against Equatorial Guinea, head coach of Nigeria’s Olympic football team, Austin Eguavoen (pictured left)still frowns at the number of chances his attackers missed on Saturday in the Olympic Games qualifiers.

Eguavoen noted that if his strikers were able to convert all the chances that came their way, Nigeria would have won the game by close to eight goals stressing the need for his goal poachers to do more.

“Whatever chance we have we need to take them at this level because there would be games with stiffer opposition and all we get may be two or three chances, so there is need for our strikers to bury every chance that comes their way,” Eguavoen said.

He maintained that his team will approach the return leg with a positive mentality because they had to maintain the winning tempo.

“We are going to approach the return leg with a winning mentality and there is a need for these strikers to be clinical in front of goal but the worst case scenario will be a draw in Malabo.”

All Foreign based players at the Benin camp of the team have since returned to their clubs.
