Nations Cup: I’m still in shock over Eagles draw – Odegbami

While some Nigerians
are seething with
anger over the 2-2
draw the Super Eagles
played last weekend
with the Lone Star of
Liberia in Monrovia in a
2013 Africa Nations
Cup qualifier, others
are still expressing
shock that the match
ended that way.
One of those still in
shock is former
national team captain,
Chief Segun Odegbami,
MON who described as
“abnormal” the mere
thought that “Liberia
has become a threat to
Nigeria’s Africa Cup of
Nations ambition.”
Speaking with
Saturday Vanguard
sports at the unveiling
of the Glo Soccer
Academy in Lagos
during the week, the
former international
said, “I am just shocked
that we have allowed
things to go as bad as
to this level where
Liberia can be
considered a threat to
us. It shows that there
are so many things
that we are doing that
are not right and we
need to look into them.
If we have any
problem with Liberia,
then we better get rid
of everybody and
everything we are
Odegbami challenged
the Stephen Keshi-led
technical crew to sit
up and ensure Nigeria
got the best crop of
players that could
bring back the country
to its right of place in
international football.
“I just feel people are
not satisfied with what
is going on right now
in the national team. It
is not about the home-
based or the foreign-
based players. They are
not just getting it right
and people are
agitated. We need
players who are
committed, who will
go in there and play to
win. Right now we are
not just contented.”
