Former Flying Eagles coach John Sam Obuh has called for patience following Nigeria’s U20 national team 2-0 defeat against the United States of America at the ongoing FIFA U20 world cup in Poland.
Obuh speaking on the outcome of the game and Nigeria’s performance said it wasn’t a good enough performance which was way below expectation but stressed that it was always going to be like that because everyone wants to qualify from the group.
He thereafter urges Nigerians to give the team the benefit of doubt going to the final group game against Ukraine.
“We all know that their performance wasn’t as expected but one thing me I know is that to play in the world cup at times it has to be so because they are really fighting to qualify from the group so there will definitely be a lot of pressure around them.
So in this situation, let’s give them benefit of doubt that at least we have all seen the level of their performance, the coaches are not daft, it’s just a question of been patient with them.”
Nigeria’s Flying Eagles will on Thursday play their last group match against Ukraine and would have to avoid a defeat to stand any chance of qualifying from the group.
