Eagles Relish Dubai Games, Want More


After playing two exciting friendly games against Cote D’ Ivoire In Abu Dhabi and Yemen in Dubai in the United Arab Emirates (UAE), losing the former 1-0 and winning the latter by 2-0, the Super Eagles made up entirely of professional players from the Nigeria Premier League, NPL, have commended the leadership of the NFF under Amaju Pinnick, for the friendlies even as they have asked for the sustenance of friendly games culture.
Speaking on behalf of his teammates, Skipper of the side, Chigozie Agbim, said all the players were very happy that they were not redundant in January, following the mishap of non-qualification for the ongoing Nations Cup championship in Equatorial Guinea.
He said he was speaking the minds of his teammates, who made the same remarks after the friendly against Yemen on Saturday in Dubai.
“All the players were unanimous in saying that playing friendly games is a way of making the team jell together and building the unity of the team, the coaching staff and the ensuring that the players are active throughout the year.”
