Super Eagles’ assistant captain, Ogenyi Onazi has called on fans to be patient with the senior national team and not heap pressure on them before, during and after matches with negative reports.
Onazi’s comment was in the wake of the team’s 2-0 win against Swaziland in Tuesday’s game played at the Adokiye Amiesiamaka Stadium, Port Harcourt.
Goals from Moses Simon and Efe Ambrose in the 51st and 83rd minutes guided Nigeria to victory which sent the team to the Group Stage of the Russia 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifiers.
But Onazi revealed during the post-match press conference that Nigerians are too critical of coach Sunday Oliseh’s team when they need to give him time to build the team to his taste.
“I want to beg Nigerians to always stay positive and not be negative in their reactions and reports about the Eagles. Even though we don’t let that bother us, negative reports have a way of demoralizing the team,” Onazi counseled.
Nigeria await their opponents for the group stage of the qualifiers.
