Nigeria’s former striker Julius Aghahowa believes the Super Eagles are moving through a necessary cycle.
The West Africans have faced significant bashing after throwing a 2-0 lead to draw with Ukraine in a friendly on Tuesday. Aghahowa believes now is the moment to allow Nigeria to development towards an improved and more advanced condition.
“We should let them progress gradually so that they can have a strong appearance when they get fully into the senior national team and hopefully with this crop of players, we are very sure that if we allow them to continue in their game, things will get better,” said the former Shakhtar Donetsk man to Brila.
The man who was known for his flamboyant backflip goal celebrations and with a record of 14 goals in 34 for Nigeria, also gave insight on the mindstate in Gernot Rohr’s team. Aghahowa noted that some players lack consideration for others in favour of making a name for themselves.
“You can see some players are been selfish a bit because they want to do something special or something extraordinary to stamp their place in the team,” concluded the Aghahowa.
