By Johnny Edward In Dar es Salaam:
Super Eagles coach Sunday Oliseh admitted his team played poorly on Saturday in the Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Tanzania but he had no complaints about the result.
Completesportsnigeria.com reports that the Eagles were distinctly second best all afternoon and were lucky to escape with a 0-0 draw.
“We were disorganized in the first half but fared better in the second,” Oliseh said moments after his first match in charge.
“In the second half we organized ourselves better but lacked that quality supply from midfield to attack. We will get better.
“We have to continue to build. We barely had two good days of training before this match so I am happy with the one point.”
Stand-in goalkeeper Carl Ikeme was the Super Eagles’ standout player, making several key saves as Tanzania created chance after chance.
Oliseh recognises the Wolves goalkeeper’s contribution, praising him.
“I don’t like to single out players from the team but I have to admit that Carl Ikeme had a great game for us today,” Oliseh added.
