 2019 AFCON: Omokaro commends Super Eagles’ victory against Seychelles

Former Nigeria international, Bright Omokaro, on Saturday lauded the Super Eagles’ 3-0 away victory against Seychelles in the 2019 African Cup of Nations qualifier in Victoria.

Omokaro, in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria in Lagos, described the Super Eagles’ performance in the match as good.

“The good thing is that we got the three points at stake in the match, and that is very vital.

“So, by and large, the players’ performance was okay all through the match,” he said.

The former international, however, urged the team to step up its performance in their remaining matches of the qualifiers against Libya and South Africa, to enable Nigeria’s flag to be hoisted at the final event in Cameroon.

NAN reports that Omokaro was part of the Green Eagles squad at Maroc ’88 Nations Cup, where Nigeria came second behind the Indomitable Lions of Cameroon.

He advised that other senior players in the squad to the recently-concluded FIFA 2018 World Cup in Russia should be featured in the remaining qualifying matches.

This, Omokaro said, would ensure Nigeria’s qualification for the final in Cameroon.

“We will need good hands to play against South Africa and Libya, if we want to qualify from our group.

“Our encounter against both countries will be the real test for Coach Gernot Rohr.

“Both countries are not pushovers; we have already lost against South Africa at home. So, our match against them is a must-win for us,” he said.
