Disu says Nigeria needs natural left-footers in attack
Former Nigeria national team Technical Director Olatunde Disu says more left-footed attackers are needed for the Super Eagles to succeed at AFCON 2019.
Disu got to make his point during an interview with PM News to discuss Nigeria’s chances in Egypt.
“The team is presently doing well and with what is on ground as my own assessment, the team equally needs the services of natural left footers to join the attack.
“Tracing back to history when the team was dominant on the continent, we have natural left-footers who were always joining the attackers to score goals.
“In 1980, we have Adokiye Amiesimaka, who is very good with his left foot and Segun Odegbami on the right, in 1994 the team had Emmanuel Amuneke and in 2013 Victor Moses.
“The team still needs the services of natural left footers because this will give them an edge over other teams though the team is in a relatively easy group now.
“The coach needs to search for natural left footers that can effectively assist the attackers since we have yet to have a playmaker at the centre now,’’ concluded Disu.
