Former Nigerian international Yisa Sofoluwe has revealed that the Super Eagles of Nigeria are not ready for the World Cup tournament in Russia, which is just some days away.
Sofoluwe said this in a chat with The Guardian as he talked about the Super Eagles and the lack of adequate preparation for the mundial.
He was quoted as follows: “The Eagles are not playing like a prepared team that is ready for the World Cup. There is no creative striker, who can dazzle opposing defenders and keep them busy for 90 minutes.”
“The midfield lacks a playmaker, who can hold the ball and make accurate passes. Defenders make costly mistakes that can ruin a team if they are playing against a tactically organised team.
“The coach should make the players to use the flanks. All the departments in the Eagles team should be worked on.
“I am afraid if the Super Eagles coaches did not get things right before the World Cup games, Nigeria would face a tough situation in Russia.
“The World Cup is not a tea party. The best players and teams in the world attend the championship. Every team has to be at its best to win matches.” He concluded.
