The Super Eagles technical adviser, Austin Eguavoen has reacted after his team’s 0-0 draw against the Black Stars of Ghana on Friday night.
Neither team could break the deadlock in their 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifying playoff first leg fixture played in Kumasi.
Speaking after the game, Equavoen said the Eagles did well in the match but identified areas they need to improve upon going into the second-leg tie in Abuja.
He said: “Organization was very good, for the fact that Ghana moves the ball really good.
“But we organized, we were in position, we combined well in all the lines, but the only thing is that we did not react quickly after an action and that is something we have to work on, try as possible to get behind the ball because you cannot let Ghanaian freedom on the ball because technically they were very good.”
He added that the team set out to win the match but would have to settle for the result and hope to complete the work in Abuja.
“We wanted to win the game and if we could not get the win, at least settle for a draw. That is exactly what happened,” he submitted.
Naija News reports that the return leg is billed for the Moshood Abiola National Stadium in Abuja on Tuesday with the winner over the two legs getting the ticket for the 2022 world cup tournament in Qatar.
