Despite the dearth of goals from the boots of Super Eagles front men in the last two months leading to the end of the season, former Super Eagles’ goal poacher, Victor Okechukwu Agali, says he believes the team’s attack is still very potent and should be a worry to opponents.
The whole of Kelechi Iheanacho, Ahmed Musa, Odion Ighalo, Alex Iwobi, Brown Ideye, Oghenekaro Etebo, Victor Moses, Kayode Olanrewaju, Moses Simon and Isaac Success have only managed a paltry 13 goals between them, a situation which many football followers think should be a cause for alarm as days to the qualifiers draw closer.
But Agali, who was prolific in front of goal in his days, says there is no cause for alarm.
“There’s no need to press the panic button. The team is doing well at the moment and have enjoyed recent successes against big teams like Algeria and Senegal and that should be good enough for their confidence. And I don’t think scoring should be a problem at all. From the defence line to the attack, what I see is a team that scores from anywhere; that’s the philosophy of Gernot Rohr.”
“Goals-scoring can’t be a problem to the team, they have so much potential and goal scorers in the team,” the former OGC Nice attacker told AOIFootball.com exclusively.
The Super Eagles lock horns against South Africa on the 10th of June in Uyo.
