Ogenyi Onazi was very influential in the Eagles midfield at the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil



Super Eagles’ vice-captain, Eddie Ogenyi Onazi has called for calm among fans after fans questioned the Eagles’ not too convincing performance in their 1-0 win over Poland in an international friendly on Friday.


The former Lazio midfielder explained to from the Eagles’ base in London, that the team needed to play cautiously, whilst promising a much better outing against Serbia on Tuesday.


“Well, I will not want to complain about the pitch but it was one of the factors. So, when I came in, we tried to bring tranquility to the team and we had to run a lot to stabilize everything. But as the game moved on we improved.


“The coach was trying some players for the first time- Joel Obi and the other guys but as time goes on I believe we will blend well,” Onazi said, adding that, the game against Serbia will be different.


“We are well prepared for the game against Serbia and I believe it will be a different match entirely compared to the Poland clash. Hopefully, we will control the game more and attack from all angles.”
