Exclusive: Unuanel Hails Eagles Win Over Mozambique

Former Kwara United coach, Samson Unuanel has commended the Super Eagles win over Mozambique in today’s international friendly game.

Recall that Nigeria secured their first friendly victory since 2019 after beating 10-man Mozambique 3-2 in a thrilling game.

Terem Moffi, Frank Onyeka and Moses Simon netted in the encounter at Portimäo in Portugal.

However, in a chat with Completesports.com, Unuanel stated that the team’s victory will help Nigeria’s rating in the FIFA ranking.

“The result is good and it is what we expect. It will really help the players to focus on the next game and prepare them for the proper competition.

“It is good for our ratings considering the fact that we drew our last match against Saudi Arabia and then win this game against Mozambique.”

Following the doubleheader games, Nigeria’s attention now shifts to the 2026 FIFA World Cup qualifiers against Lesotho’s Crocodiles and Zimbabwe.

The Super Eagles will play Lesotho first at home on November 13, 2023, before the team jets out to battle the Warriors of Zimbabwe three days later.
