The Super Eagles’ inability to qualify for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar is still generating mixed reactions among Nigerians.
In this interview, a veteran Journalist and Public Affairs Analyst, Babajide Kolade-Otitoju is strongly of the opinion that since the exit of Stephen Keshi and Amodu, local coaches are yet to perform as expected. He said, “I believe a foreign coach will be good for the super eagles.”
Babajide Kolade said if Austin Eguavoen had coached the players on the essence of team spirit, Nigeria might not have crashed out of the race to Qatar.
Speaking about the invasion of the football pitch on the day the match was played, Babajide Kolade Otitoju said, “Nigerians did their best to support the super eagles but the outcome was horrible. There are matches you will lose and not feel terrible because of how the players performed but this one was clearly different.”
The veteran journalist said there are talented players in the Super Eagles’ squad but what they need is just a good and experienced coach.
