Lawal positive ahead of Eagles’ Friendlies

Share This

Former Super Eagles midfielder, Garba Lawal, has backed the home-based Super Eagles team to do well when they face the Elephants of Ivory Coast and the Jediane Falcons of Sudan in the two international friendly games scheduled for this month.

The home-based team will play Africa Cup of Nations bound Ivory Coast, and Sudan, who coincidentally were in Nigeria’s qualifying group to the 2015 AFCON, and failed to qualify to the tournament alongside Nigeria and Lawal believes the Nigerian team has enough to get good results.

“I think we should be able to hold our own against Sudan and Ivory Coast because I believe we have good players in the team. The friendly matches will be good for them and I believe they can play those games and get good results,” Lawal posited.

The former Esperance of Tunisia winger once again bemoaned Nigeria’s failure to qualify to the Africa Cup of Nations, but says the country must focus to achieve success in the future.

“It’s quite unfortunate that we failed to qualify to the AFCON but we have to stay focused now and keep working hard so that we can achieve success in the future. We must keep looking at the future and learn from the mistakes of the past,” he added.
