Former Super Eagles Attacker Chinedu Obasi has said the team is one of the best national teams in Africa with quality players, despite failing to win a match in 2020.
Super Eagles will end the year as the 35th ranked team in the world and fifth best in Africa, behind Senegal, Morocco, Algeria and Tunisia.
The three-time African champions played four matches in 2020, recording a defeat and three draws, including the 4 – 4 result against Sierra Leone in the Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers played in November.
While assessing the team performance, Obasi told brila.net that the team has huge potentials in all departments and tasked the Manager, Gernot Rohr, to get the best out of every player in the squad.
“We have a great team, but sometimes it’s difficult to say like the last game; it didn’t go the way we would have wanted, going four ahead of Sierra Leone and the opponents coming back, it’s always a very difficult situation,” said Obasi.
“At the same time, I think we have a great team, it’s all about finding a way to get the best out of the boys, I just think that’s the key.”
The former Nigerian international added that there was need for experienced vets in the squad, but he’s optimistic the team will bounce back on 2021.
“And sometimes, there are places where you need experience, but it’s not my job; I’m just a spectator watching from outside and it is a different ball game when you are with the team. But I wish them all the best next year,” He concluded.
Obasi earned 28 caps for the Super Eagles and represented Nigeria at the 2008 African cup of Nations and 2010 FIFA World Cup in South Africa.
