Super Eagles B coach, Imama Amapakabo has stated that the home-based Eagles did not underrate their opponents Togo after the team was walloped 4-1 by the Togolese on Sunday in the first leg last round qualifier for 2020 Africa Nations Championship
“No, we never underrated our opponents. That would have been a foolish thing to do in football. The truth is that we fielded mainly a young team that could not really live up to expectations technically compared to the senior players in the Togolese side who have gained experience over the years.
“However, we have taken this as a learning curve moving forward and awaiting the return match.”
“It is wrong to think that this match would determine which team goes through. We know there is a second match and no two games can ever be the same. From now until October 19, it is still quite some time away to make amends and produce the right form for the work ahead. It is after the match in Nigeria that it can become clear who qualifies,” he said
