Super Eagles goalkeeper trainer Alloy Agu has stated that the team's international friendly games against DR Congo and Cameroon is a sign of better things to come.
In a chat with completesportsnigeria.com, Agu said the team should be commended for their performance in the games.
"We are in a process and the process is not yet complete," the former Nigeria goalkeeper told Completesportsnigeria.com.
"Playing those two games against such opponents and coming out with such results, I think it is something to reckon with and what one should commend the team for.
"Keeping a clean sheet against Cameroon after losing 2-0 to Congo, that is the beauty about football. When you least expect to get a result, you end up getting it, you can't predict the game.
"We had seven chances against Congo, they had two and they put the two chances away. Against Cameroon, we had chances and we were able to convert three, that is what the game is about. We only hope for better things to come."
He went on to express confidence that the Eagles will do everything possible to make sure they don't disappoint in the qualifiers still ahead of them.
"Looking ahead to some of the games that are still before us, it is important we take them one after the other. We know what is at stake and every game is so important," he added.
"We have the CHAN qualifier against Burkina Faso this weekend, the World Cup qualifier and the Cup of Nations qualifier against Egypt. We will do all we can to make sure we put smiles on the faces of Nigerians by coming out victorious in these games."
