Reactions have continued to trail the Super Eagle’s 2-2 draw with the Syli Nationale of Guinea. Former assistant coach of the team, Joe Erico has said the Eagles failed to qualify for the 2012 Nations Cup because they failed to take their chances in yesterday’s match.
The Super Eagles crashed out of the 2012 Africa Cup of Nations after they were held to a 2-2 draw by Guinea at the Abuja National Stadium.
The former international goalkeeper blamed the strikers for the team’s dismal outing as he said they failed to convert begging chances.
He said the timing of the match did not affect the Eagles only as their opponents were not also spared the scorching heat that saw all the players gasping for breath after every move.
Erico said the timing of the match did a lot to reduce the quality of the match just as he wondered why CAF took that decision considering the fact that most players on the continent now play in Europe under very cold weather conditions.
Erico said the failure of Eagles to qualify for Gabon/Equatorial Guinea is very painful but it would make the nation appreciate victories in future.
