Nigeria's Super Eagles have defeated the Mena Stars of Niger 2-0 in an international friendly match played on Tuesday, September 8 at the Adokiye Amiesimaka stadium, Port Harcourt.
Just three days after a goalless draw against Tanzania in Dar es Salaam, Super Eagles coach, Sunday Oliseh, who is undoubtedly delighted this afternoon, could not hide his feeling at claiming his first win in charge of the National team.
In a friendly played in Port Harcourt, Nigeria beat Niger Republic 2-0, the delighted coach stated on SuperSport Moments;
"No doubt I’m happy because there were improvements from the game against Tanzania and the motive of this game was to correct what was noticed. In terms of defending we did well and when we pressed we did it well but I hope to see the team keep the ball more and dictate the pace of the game."
The former Juventus and Borussia Dortmund man also insisted that there is still room for Chelsea midfielder, John Mikel Obi and Lille stopper, Vincent Enyeama in his squad.
"There’s room for Mikel and the rest but so long as they all are playing regularly. All these players that featured against Niger and Tanzania were all playing for their respective teams," Oliseh added.
Speaking on Enyeama, who missed the two games because of his mother’s death, the coach said: "Nobody is indispensable it is only Nigeria that is indispensable. I played for the country and I retired, someone else took over and that’s life."
