If Super Eagles had lost the game against Egypt, by now, we would have been blaming Austin Eguavoen and his “tactical blunders.”
Indigenous coaches would have come under fire. They would have called amatuers. Our domestic league would have been further rubbished if not crucified.
Some great critics would have been giving reasons why we need a foreign coach….and even justifying the signing or hiring of Jose Peseiro.
Some persons in the NFF would have been suggesting that Peseiro be drafted immediately into the dressing room of the Super Eagles to take charge of the remaining fixtures of the tournament.
Some would have argued that it was the absence of scorers like Victor Osimhen and Odion Ighalo that caused Eagles defeat as the team lacked scorers or couldn’t score.
The players would naturally be receiving the knocks for not doing enough to beat the Pharaohs. Yours Sincerely won’t be left out in scolding the Eagles. I would have spareheaded the flogging.
Thankfully, the boys came to the party against seven-time champion of AFCON and the three points have shot the team to the top of the group.
Things can only get better with the right coach in charge and the right atmosphere for the team to perform. We have to look inward to develop the sport. We have the coaches and the players.
