Maigari said football lovers have to be patient with the coach while he works out tactics and strategies that will make the team to improve in their subsequent games.
"They didn't do badly, the team is new and so also the coach needs some time to shape up the team. But they have to improve and gradually, I know they will," Maigari said.

"The coach should invite more quality players to ensure that we have more solid Super Eagles, bearing in mind time is not on our side.
"Let's wish and pray for him and the team. There is nothing prayer cannot do."
Meanwhile, the Super Eagles who won the 2013 African Cup of Nations in South Africa will host Swaziland on Tuesday and Maigari has charged the team to go for nothing short of total victory in the match.
