Aigbogun: Mexico Friendly Challenge For Home-based Eagles 

Assistant coach of the home-based Eagles Paul Aigbogun has described next month’s friendly against Mexico as a challenge for the home-based Eagles.

The home-based Eagles are currently in Abuja preparing for the game against Mexico which comes up on July 4th in Low Angeles, USA.

And ahead of the game, Aigbogun admits the Mexicans would be tough.

“Talking about Mexico they are  not an easy team,” he told Super Eagles media. “But it’s a challenge for the players, it’s a challenge for everybody that’s here.

“I think it’s for them to go out and feel confidence for themselves which is what we are trying to put in them and for them to take the opportunity ahead of them to do the nation proud.”

Aigbogun praised the players for being a good shape for the game, while urging them to make good use of the opportunity.

He added:”One important thing is that they’ve all come in very good shape and it’s for them to take on board what the head of the team is trying to impact in them.

“But so far, they are doing well, there’s little improvement to be made because it’s a new thing for them but what we’ve seen so far it’s quite positive.”

Meanwhile, the team’s scheduled evening training in the training pitch of the Aguiyi Ironsi Barracks has been call off.

They will rather hold a light session at their Serob Legacy Hotel.

    Bunch of dishonest Charlatans, you have all succeeded in murdering the beauty of the game in the country, all because of greed and personal interest. Pinnick has failed by giving jobs to failures and leaving great coaches like Manu Garba and Nduka Ugbade who have discovered great talents like Iheanacho and co Jobless.

    Nigeria is a failed state that is why foreign Borns will not commit to us because they are very much observant of the mishaps going on in the country, only the less valued foreign borns with no hope of a better country gives in to us. True talk the love of the game is lost in the country…….

  • Manu Garba is not a great coach. He also failed in U-17. Rohr does not have what it takes to turn around SE. He’s probably too old and doesn’t understand the mentality of Nigerian players. Coaching a team for over five years, yet the team is still struggling. Westerhoff coached Nigeria for a couple of years, we became one of the most feared teams in the world and were at a time ranked 5th.
