Austin Eguavoen says he doesn’t considered himself a failure, despite the World Cup qualifying fiasco against Ghana.
Eguavoen was named interim Super Eagles gaffer after the sacking of Gernot Rohr back in November.
The transmission didn’t go down smoothly as Eguavoen and the team lost in the round of 16 of the African Cup of Nations in Cameroon.
Nigeria also failed to qualify for the World Cup in Qatar, after losing on away goals to West African neighbors Ghana over the two legs.
“I don’t see myself as a failure,” Eguavoen rebuffed.
“I don’t have regrets taking the Super Eagles job. I can’t reject the call to serve.”
Eguavoen later questioned the mentality and character of the players during his brief stint.
The former Coach believes some players could not deliver when it mattered most.
“Maybe the Super Eagles players don’t have the character, I used the word maybe. I also think the emotion was overwhelming,” He concluded.
