Former Super Eagles Midfielder Christian Obodo says the current team lacks natural creative players; with flair and dribbling skills to mesmerize opponents and spectators.
Obodo shared his thoughts with former teammate Ifeanyi Udeze on Brila FM’s breakfast show “No Holds Barred”, on Wednesday.
“I feel they lack the personality, they don’t know the right time to do it. In a Country like ours, fans don’t forgive mistakes and so this could affect a Player’s confidence.
“It was a problem for a player like Jay-Jay, who could show his skills unhindered even in his sleep. Same for me, Kanu (Nwankwo) too and some other gifted Super Eagles stars.”

“So I believe they lack the personality for the dribbling skills. If you want to entertain your fans and show your skills, you need to have confidence and kill all form of stage fright and fear.
“You’ll notice that there are some Players who perform well for their clubs, but end up as flops in the national teams. I believe they need the personality and confidence to express themselves freely.”
