Nigeria's Kenneth Omeruo in the game vs Senegal

Former Dream Team VI Assistant Coach, MondayOdigie, has said that the Super Eagles’ 1-1 draw in last week’s international friendly against the Teranga Lions of Senegal at the Hive, Barnet in London, is not enough to judge new invitees Tyron Ebuehi, Noah Bazee and Kayode Olanrewaju, because none of them had a taste of real action in the game.

The former Bayelsa United coach hailed the Super Eagles’ determination against an impressive Senegalese side, and reckoned that the friendly game has given the team a progressive bonding.

He noted further that the players should be called upon for subsequent matches, so that they can be adjudged properly and be incorporated in the part of the Super Eagles.

“The games are actually meant to bring about bonding and understanding among the players because most of them have not played together for a while now.”

“I believe the game has given them a little bit of progressive bonding, as far as I am concerned.”

“But the Senegal game is not enough and cannot be enough to judge the new invitees; we will have to look at the objective of their invitation as they need to be seen more to know if they have what it takes to contribute to the Super Eagles,” he concluded.
