Thank you, Siasia

For over eight years, we were told that Lagos was not safe to host matches involving the Super Eagles. Former Eagles coaches and former administrators of the game refused to take any game to Lagos.

Samson Siasia is confident of himself and perhaps has nothing to hide or be afraid of. He made it known from the first day that he would like Eagles to play before Lagos crowd. And so, against Sierra Leone in a friendly encounter, the Eagles filed out and did well to win 2-1. I’m not bothered about the final result. The main issue here is the positives in the match. It was a delight to see players like Ehigo Ehiosun, Joel Obi and Ahmed Musa. Holland-based Musa was particularly fantastic on the flanks and if well polished, he could be another Finidi George. Ehiosun of Warri Wolves proved that the domestic league is not too bad. The goal he scored was a delight.

The defence is a major concern for now and the coaching crew must start from there to gradually raise another Eagles team we could be proud of.

It is a building process and I wonder why some fans were booing the players towards the end of the match. It was the first time most of those players were playing together and there is need to encourage the players. Again, the fans were simply ungrateful to Siasia who brought back the senior team to the City of Excellence. However, players who are not ready to adhere to camp rules s hould be excluded from future games.Thank you Sia One.
