AFCON 2021- Eguavoen Speaks On Misfiring Super Eagles Strikers Ahead Of Sudan Clash


Interim coach of the senior national team of Nigeria Austine Eguavoen says he is working on the efficiency of his team scoring goals after scoring just once against Egypt.
Nigeria got their campaign underway with a slim 1-0 win courtesy of a goal from Leicester City forward Kelechi Iheanacho but with proper conversation of chances, they would have scored more.
In the absence of top striker Victor Osimhen and last AFCON tournament top scorer Odion Ighalo, the burden of scoring goals for the Nigerian team lies on the shoulders of the duo of Taiwo Awoniyi and Sadiq Umar.
Both of them fail to hit the net against Egypt but ahead of the game against Sudan, Eguavoen said he wants his team to not just rely on the strikers but share the responsibility of scoring goals.
“We have talked about scoring goals. I have made it clear that we won’t build our team on one person scoring goals. That’s why we try to assist one another. If you are not in a good position, try to assist your teammates. It’s a collective effort”, he explained.
