The Super Eagles beat their hosts 2-0 in Monrovia.

In separate interviews, they told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Thursday in Lagos that Keshi had shown that the nation’s football was in the right direction.

They, however, warned that professional players should not be written off as their exposure and experience would be needed in crucial matches.

Hamilton, a former Super Falcons coach, said that he was impressed with the formation of the team.

He said that the local players needed exposure and fame which, according to him, will spur them to put in their best for their country.

Hamilton urged Nigerians to be patient with Keshi, saying that he was toeing a good path which might not yield immediate results.

“I commend Keshi because he took the right decision, Nigerians should just be patient for the decision will yield fruit in the future,’’ he said.

Fatai Amoo, a former Super Eagles Assistant Coach, also said the home-based team was a good side that was built on confidence and team spirit which gave them the victory over Leone Stars.

He said the introduction of the home-based players was a good development but cautioned that the professional players should not be written off completely.

Amoo said that the exposure and experience of the professionals were important in crucial matches as some of them had the fighting spirit.

“The home-based players selected are good but we must not write off the professionals for their experience and exposure are factors needed in crucial matches,’’ Amoo said.
