Former Technical Director, Nigeria Football Federation, Olatunde Disu said that the steady improvement of the senior national team, the Super Eagles, under the Franco-German tactician, Gernot Rohr, really did impress him.
In an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria, Disu gave his assessment of the Eagles in the double header game; African Cup of Nations qualifiers and the International friendly with Egypt.
Truly, they were impressive to watch, and seem to have come far in stability, teamwork and goal shots on target.
The senior national team had qualified for the AFCON in style with a dead rubber game to play against Seychelles which they won 3-1 and thereafter defeated the Pharaohs of Egypt 1-0 in a friendly encounter.
Disu said that the team had improved a lot, adding that the team remained the favourite to lift the AFCON trophy for the fourth time.
“The coach, Rohr impressed me a lot with his recent victories and achievements. The team has improved a lot.
“The team now has the blend of youngsters that can hold any team. This is good for the country because any team that can beat a country like Egypt is a top team in Africa.
“The team has the confidence of taking on any country and that is what they need to win in any competition. As a coach studying the team myself, I can see a lot of improvement in them.
“We are a force to reckon with in African football, and no country should take that away from us. The coach has really tried in scouting for new talents that can deliver for the country,’’ he said.
