Super Eagles assistant manager, Joseph Yobo has come out to ask the players to play to their strength during the AFCON tournament. He recently revealed this while speaking to the press, and fans have been reacting.
According to him, the coaches always tell the boys to keep up the tempo during matches because the standard was already set against Egypt.
Yobo added that coming into the tournament with players pulling out
was not easy at all, but the boys have coped thus far.
His words, “The tactical instruction? Play to [their] strength, keep [up] the tempo.”
“We set the standard against Egypt and didn’t want to drop the momentum. We know the qualities of all our players but most importantly we wanted to play as a team. We are playing as a unit.”
“Credits to the player, they did the magic. It was never easy coming into the tournament with players pulling out and the short time to prepare for the tournament. We have played two great games so far.”
“I am very pleased with the central defenders as players come in and out.”
“It is a partnership and not all about individual performance. This is what we keep working on. In the two games, it was only a penalty that was scored against us.”
“That could have been ruled out but we are improving and have some sound players in and out.”
