Enyeama, Amodu happy with progress

Super Eagles first choice keeper Vincent Enyeama, who made stunning saves towards the end of the 0-0 draw against Rwanda on Wednesday, in Kigali , has said the team will get better in the days ahead as the national team was going through a major rebuilding process.

Enyeama, who was reviewing the game with his skipper, Joseph Yobo, gave kudos to the Rwandan side and said Nigeria will show the stuff they are made of in the return leg of the encounter in June.

“Towards the end of the match it was tense and the opposition threatened but we stood our grounds, Nigerians should just remember that it’s an away game, we’ll do better next time.

On his part, ex-Super Eagles handler Shuaibu Amodu, who was in Kigali for the encounter asked Nigerians to exercise some patience with the national team and its handler, Stephen Keshi.

Amodu, said as far as he was concerned, the Nigerian side played a matured game against a rampant opponent and got a good result by all standards.

“The days when you beat teams like Rwanda and co by a wide margin even before their fans are gone in African football. Zambians demonstrated that at the last Nations Cup and teams like Rwanda are following up. We must not condemn our team for not winning but encourage them because if we qualify we have more time to prepare and the team will jell better. For now let’s just qualify first for the Nations Cup.”
