Ogunjobi, Esin tip Eagles for greater heights

Former Secretary General of the Nigeria Football Association, Taiwo Ogunjobi, has heaped praise on the national team over its victory against Namibia last weekend.

In the same vein, former Super Eagles playmaker, Etim Esin, says the Eagles have proven that the tears of not qualifying for the last Nations Cup are gradually being wiped away.

Ogunjobi, who has also bossed several clubs like Shooting Stars, Gabros International and Julius Berger said he was thrilled at the display of the players, despite obvious frustration thrown at them by Namibia.

The former Shooting Stars captain however called on Stephen Keshi, not to change his programme of blooding home based stars into the national team, declaring that it has been the missing link in the national team.

He also had words of admonition for Wigan Atletic star, Victor Moses. “He was a little bit on the slow side, maybe because he was hit once or twice by the opponents defenders, that is African football and our own defenders, must learn to hit him harder during training to make him stronger for the future.”

On his part, Esin said he was pleased with the output of the players in the game against Namibia and urged the team to build on it in the game against Malawi on Saturday.

“Some people might say, we scored only one goal, but at times that might turn out to be the decider of who wins the group or the person that will come second, we must praise the players for their strong show against Namibia.”
