Erstwhile Technical Committee member of the Nigeria Football Federation, John Mastoroudes insists the Super Eagles under new coach, Sunday Oliseh, will get better following their poor display in Saturday’s 2016 African Cup of Nations qualifying tie against the Taifa Stars of Tanzania in Dar es Salaam, reports Completesportsnigeria.com.
The three-time kings of Africa were lucky to escape with a draw in the encounter played at the National Stadium in Dar es Salaam with the hosts fluffing a number of scoring opportunities in the game.
The encounter was the first competitive game for handler of the side, Sunday Oliseh who took over from the sacked Stephen Keshi a couple of months back.
And despite voicing his displeasure over the team’s poor performance, the Greek born soccer administrator is adamant the Super Eagles will improve in subsequent games.
“It was a miserable performance by the Super Eagles,” Mastoroudes told Completesportsnigeria.com after the match on Saturday.
“The Tanzanians created better chances and could have won the game if not for their prolifigacy in front of goal.
“There was no coordination in our play as the midfield failed to support the attack.
“But I don’t want to come too hard on the coach, Sunday Oliseh, as that was his first game in charge of the team.
“I hope the team will get better with time. There is need to be more cohesion and discipline in the team, but that will take time.”
