Why Eagles Crashed In Brazil -Wenger

Arsenal manager, Arsene Wenger says poor organization was the reason behind the failure of Nigeria’s Super Eagles to progress beyond the round of 16 at the 2014 FIFA World Cup finals in Brazil.
Wenger who has been carrying out a post-mortem of the African champions’ showing in Brazil, said the Super Eagles could have progressed further than they did in the competition in Brazil if conditions were ideal.
“Nigeria had no solidarity. They showed the whole world the problems they had before the World Cup and it was the same with Cameroun,” Supersport quotted Wenger as saying.
“The problem was not lack of talent but with poor organization,” Wenger told Beinsport.
Wenger however identified positives in the play of the Eagles in Brazil and praised the team’s first half display against eventual conquerors, France.
“Nigeria was not too bad against France. They had a good first half but could not maintain the momentum in the second half,” he said.
Nigeria have never progressed beyond the round of 16 at the World Cup.
