Nwanu: Eagles Need Overhauling

–Ex-international wants Uche back in the team

Former Nigeria international defender Chidi Nwanu has called for the overhauling of the present Super Eagles team.


Nwanu, a former team mate of Super Eagles Coach Stephen Keshi in 1994 disclosed that he was disappointed with the performance of the players in the two matches, adding that it showed clearly that the players were no more in the mood to play for their country.

“It is sad to watch the Super Eagles lose to Congo Brazaville the way did in Calabar. It showed that there are problems in the team and now is the time something drastic should be done and I would suggest a total overhauling of the team for Nigeria to progress”, says the ex-international
“The way I see these players now, there is a total decline in their performance compared to when the players fought gallantly in South.


Africa in 2013 to win the Africa Cup of Nations. So there is need for my friend and brother Stephen Keshi to have a second look at this team and do a surgical operation by overhauling the team,” he stated.

He continued: “Nigeria is a country blessed with lots of talented footballers and we need players that are hungry, devoted, dedicated and ready to fight for shirts in the team. Keshi should remember that during our days, there was serious fight for position in the team,” Nwanu stated.

    The overhauling should start with the coaching crew as Keshi has nothing more to offer. The removal of coach Sylvanus Okpara from the Eagles bench is what we are suffering now. I could remember Keshi calling for reinstatement of Okpara in eagles coaching crew but NFF did not understand. After the removal of Sylvanus Okpara from the eagles coaching crew what happens in the Confederation Cup in Brazil and the World cup to say the least. These boys are still good even in their various clubs and should be properly selected to do the job.

    @Saint Palmer Removing the coaching crew is definitely an option.

    Chidi Nwanu is right that the team needs overhauling and and new players. New players will put the currently players under pressure to perform. Some of the players are feeling too comfortable with no competiton.

    The following players should be invited to the next Super eagles outing.

    Kelechi Iheanacho (for attacking creativity, passing ability, and goal scoring)
    Isacc Success
    Chuks Aneke (for midfield creativity, passing ability, technical skill and goal scoring)
    Chinedu Obasi
    Kenny Otigba (to provide comepetiion for Omeruo and Oboabona)

    Stephen Keshi has lost ideas. He should be replaced with Siasia (an attacking minded coach) and Siasia should be mandated to call players like Musa Mohammed (right full back), Musa Yahaya, Taiwo Awoniyi, Isaac Success (Strikers) and Iheanacho (creative midfielder), with this, I am sure Nigeria will win the remaining three matches.
