Adegboye Onigbinde has hailed the Super Eagles’ 2-1 away win in Ndola against the Chipolopolo of Zambia in the opening fixture of the Russia 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifiers played at the Levy Mwanawasa Stadium yesterday.
The former CAF/FIFA instructor has, however, challenged the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) to employ the services of other good hands to complement the effort of the Eagles technical crew to ensure that the senior national team gains the automatic berth to Russia from Group B.
He told SportingLife:” I congratulate Nigerians for this victory. The team played very well and deservedly worked for it but I cannot say much from outside when I am far off from the team. I cannot be doing the work of the technical adviser but nonetheless I want to congratulate the team for braving the odds to get the three points.”
The Eagles will face Algeria’s Desert Foxes on November 12 at the Adokie Amiesimaka Stadium, Port Harcourt in their next match after claiming the maximum points in Ndola through the goals of Alex Iwobi and Kelechi Iheanacho in the 31st and 42nd minutes of the first half before the Zambians scored in the 71st minute through Collins Mbesuma.
