Exclusive: 2022 WCQ: I’m Impressed With Super Eagles’ Hunger, Determination Ahead CAR Game -Nwosu

Former Nigerian midfielder, Henry Nwosu says he’s impressed with the hunger and determination being displayed by the invited Super Eagles players ahead of the 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifiers against the Central Africa Republic (CAR).

Nigeria host the Wild Beasts on October 7 in Lagos, before travelling for the reverse fixture three days later.

Having won both of the first two games in the series, the Super Eagles will go all out for the maximum six points as it may be enough for Nigeria to book a place in the third and final round of the series.

In an interview with Completesports.com, Nwosu stated that the early arrival of the foreign based players is indication of their seriousness for the game against CAR.

“I am really impressed with the early arrival of some of the foreign based players to camp for the game against the Central Africa Republic. This goes to show that the players are hungry and determine to get the job done as early as possible.

“I don’t think the Central Africa Republic will pull an upset against the Super Eagles considering the fact that the players are aware of what is at stake. I can confidently tell you that the team will pick six points in both games.”

    “I am really impressed with the early arrival of some of the foreign based players to camp for the game against the Central Africa Republic. This goes to show that the players are hungry and determine to get the job done as early as possible.

    I don’t think the Central Africa Republic will pull an upset against the Super Eagles considering the fact that the players are aware of what is at stake. I can confidently tell you that the team will pick six points in both games.”

    We don’t have minor teams in Africa no more and Super Eagles have to be ready.

    On paper, Super Eagles is mighty but on the field of play, anything can happen because the coaches of the Super Eagles are predictable.

    The midfield and goalkeeping department should be something Nigerians should be more worried about as we are heading to the world cup qualifiers and Afcon tournament.

    We may be winning against the minor teams but when it is matter to win against the big teams, I hope it won’t be too late to realize that we are not there yet.

    Why is it taking so long for Super Eagles to be super again? NFF and the coaches in charge of the Super Eagles should answer the question.

    It may looks like we have what it takes to win any tournament but how to use what we have to achieve our goal of winning trophies under the current coaches of the Super Eagles is what we should be thinking about now.

    Yes we have fantastic squad of individual players capable of playing at final of any tournament but are they motivated enough?

    Do we have players that can win game for us?

    Freekick is part of the game, do we have one or two players in that role that can do the job?

    These are the things to looking into when building a team but unfortunately, we don’t have all these qualities in this Super Eagles.

    The question we should be asking ourselves now is, are we going to another Afcon and world cup to make the numbers or we are going to both tournaments to rule the world?

    Are we ready for that challenges yet or we are just having fantastic players in the Super Eagles.

    My goal and vision is beyond we qualify with ease to any tournament. If we can not beat Algeria, Senegal, Morocco, Tunisia and other big teams in Africa and outside Africa then NFF are just wasting their time with the current coaching crew of the Super Eagles over the past five years.

    Let’s be humble this time around. We don’t have what it takes as a team to go beyond this level under the current Super Eagles gaffers but individually Yes.

    Let’s be cautious and stop saying “I don’t think the Central Africa Republic will pull an upset against the Super Eagles considering the fact that the players are aware of what is at stake”.

    We saw what Sierra Leone did to our Super Eagles.

    Madagascar did the same. Since the gaffers refuses to invite the natural no10 that can distribute ball to our strikers and our wingers, if CAR clips down our wingers, is there any plan in place?

    Let’s be humble my people. Good luck Super Eagles. God bless Nigeria!!!

     
    • Stop commenting. U nor know football.

       
    • Thank u sir. . Team that doesn’t have plan B . C and D. If things turn around who wil take charge. Nobody. .

      D distributors were there when same sierra Leone defeated us 1-0 in 2001, ur distributors were there when Cameroon came to Lagos win 2000 nations cup, what of against Senegal in 2002, against morocco in 2004, tunisia same to 2004. What of against Angola in 2005. Ur siasia failed against Guinea in 2011, ordinary second they cannot get to. Let me not bring back the days we use calculator and start to do permutation, d coach will soon leave, so prepare ur CV.

       
      • In Liberia can beat cape Verde away and eagle can draw in yahunde Den is like we can qualify wit a game or two to go

         
    • It appears I’m the only one who sees sense in @Omo9ja’s post. I’m also worried about the lack of playmaking outlets in that team.

      The points he raised are valid. For example, in very tight games where it’s all a cagey affair, these critical aspects of the game can decide a match.

      Come to think of it, the last time the SE scored off a direct freekick was that of Iheanacho against Argentina before the last WC.

      Truth be told, such luxuries in a footballer can only be found in those who are committed improving themselves continually. Presently, only Osimhen is showing that zeal to keep growing. That’s why he is where he is today.

       
      • Iheanacho is a free kick specialist. He has proved it countless times. The one who would have been is Kelechi Nwakali (when he gets form) and if he is selected in future, also Eze can take free kicks. I also don’t say much but one of the reasons I clamour for Ademola Lookman is because I know he is also good at freekicks. I don’t think he is better than Iheanacho in that regard though.

        With Iheanacho’s confidence at the moment I think the Free kicks are safe in his hands. Who know maybe one of the new invites are good at taking Free kicks.

         
        • Eze is not a super eagles player. He wants to play for England so we shouldn’t be mentioning him interms of what he can do for the Super Eagles since he doesn’t have the intention of playing for Nigeria yet.
          The one player who may consider a switch to Nigeria is danjuma, but he will only do that as a last result. All these players who feel they can come into the Super Eagles team whenever they like and get a regular shirt have to be really bringing something special to the team or else they can make do with the waiting list.
          And I also feel the Super Eagles lack adequate back up in terms of the midfield. The coach has to do more in terms of getting good creative midfielders who can make things happen for the team.

        name one direct free kick Nigeria scored from 1980 t0 2003, how often did super Ealges scored with dead balls or set pieces from 1990 t0 2010. lets stop all this unnecessary criticism and c positivity in d team. yes we are not there yet, so also all teams. name one free kick England, Italy and others scored during this just concluded euros. there is different between club football and country. where the playmakers when we fell to senegal in 2002, fell to Tunisia, almost missed japan/Korea 2002. where the playmakers when denmark disgrace us in france 1998, who of 2002 world cup nkor. did ghana have playmaker before they won 2010 nations cup with Asamua gyan as the only star in that team. if u can endure Amodu, christian chukwu saisia calculator era and run away Olise and u cannot watch this coach matches, then switch off ur tv set any time we are playing, or better still go and drag or stop the coach from performing his duties

    We need to change the mentality of coachong crew and players so we can beat any team in Africa and World;this mentality must be changing pattern and style of play to a defensive style just on defensive midfield and center back this need many things as follows:- play with pressing and ferociousness in midfield and center back then Super Eagles must not give the rival and competitor any chance or gab to press SE but SE must press in order to control the game then SE can score many goals, then they (SE) must not allow or let the rival to press and score on SE.If coaching crewvand players of SE apply this philosophy they can go up to half final in the World cup and we can win Afcon. easliy…

      then tell nff to stop imposing players on the coach, and also to pay the players and coaching what they deserve at when due, because they work for it.
