Dosu: Eagles Still Have Much Work To Do Ahead AFCON 2022

Former Nigeria international goalkeeper, Dosu Joseph says the Super Eagles still have a lot of work to do ahead of qualifying and featuring at the 2022 Africa Cup of Nations in Cameroon.

Reacting to the Super Eagle’s 4-4 draw in Benin City and 0-0 draw away against Sierra Leone third, Dosu says the Eagles should have picked at least four points from the double-header.

“I think we just have to make do with the goalless draw the Super Eagles recorded in Freetown because we already lost the plot in the first game in Benin City. If we had secured at least a win and a draw over the two legs, it would have been more acceptable. So playing 4-4 and 0-0 with Sierra Leone is not good enough, but we are still topping the group, which is good for us.

“However we need to wake up and work very hard if we want to go far in the tournamament when we eventually qualify for the AFCON where we would be competing with the likes of Egypt, Morocco, Cote d’Ivoire, Cameroon and others.”

Dosu added: “There is still a lot of work to be done by the Eagles because in this qualifying stage, we need to go play the smaller countries, beat them silly and then wait for the big teams to come.

“As regards playing Maduka Okoye in goal again, I think coach Gernot Rohr did well to show his faith in the keeper which will go a long way to help his confidence.If the coach had benched him in Freetown, it would have demoralize him.

“Now he got a Clean sheet in the game and made one or two good saves which is good. But all the goaikeepers need to wake up too because the fight for the number-one shirt is stll very open.”

  • If over four years, Rohr cannot raise a formidable team, it means he can’t take this team to a major tournament and win it. NFF should contact someone who understood the mentality of Nigerian players, culture and traditions. Someone like Bonfere Jo because we do not have time anymore. Other qualifiers are coming up soon as well.

    They should settle their differences if any because he is the man who can lead us to glory like he did in Atlanta and played a wonderful brand of football. Power, skills and attacking football. He also won Afro-Asian Cup for Nigeria. Got to the final of AFCON. With the calibre of players we have now, I strongly believe with him, we would not only beat Guinea away and destroy Lesotho at home, we would reach the final of AFCON and go very far in 2022 World Cup. He is also a physical trainer. Good at conditioning players.

      Is bonfrere jo not too old for the job. I would advice we get a young coach. Bonfrere is 74 years old.

       
      • Jo Bonfere is not too old. He’s coached in South Korea as well. Nigeria has the players, what we need is someone who is very experienced and technically and tactically sound. He could also come with a young and energetic assistant coach. This is a man who’s lived in Nigeria for so many years.

        Dutch style of football is the most suitable for us. Under Dutch coaches, Nigeria played fantastic football and were feared by national teams. Ask Diego Someone.
