Former Super Eagles handler Samson Siasia says all the Home Eagles need to be back on track is to remain focused and learn from their defeat to Mali in their opening game of the 2014 CAF African Nations Championship holding in South Africa, We can report.
The Home Eagles who are featuring in the Championship for the first time had a disappointing 2-1 defeat in the hands of Mali last Saturday and will be up against Mozambique in their next game tomorrow and Siasia who once played for the Super Eagles believes they can still make it despite the defeat.
“Well, I don’t want to judge them with the first game yet but with the result they recorded on Saturday, I want to believe they can do better in their second game which is against Mozambique but they need to be focused and learn from their previous game in the CHAN”, says the soccer tactician.
“They are new to the championship but I believe they can learn from that game and even do better in the subsequent games, Mozambique did not do well in their first game as well because they lost 3-1 to South Africa so I don’t expect these boys to lose again.
Meanwhile, Coach Stephen Keshi has assured that the team will bounce back after their disappointing outing last Saturday and he is confident that the team will beat Mozambique tomorrow.
As Nigeria file out against Mozambique, South Africa will be playing Mali in their second game of the tournament while the last group game will hold on Sunday.
