Observations from Flying Eagles victory over South Sudan

Two important things can be noted from the victory over South Sudan on Monday; and they are:

First, the Flying Eagles lacked composure at the back(in the defense department). The defenders started very well, but became sloppy towards the end of the first period. Giving away possessions to the opponent attackers, who however failed to capitalise on the loose balls.

Secondly, the goalkeeping and attacking departments are wasteful whenever in possession of the ball.

Goalkeeper, Nathaniel Nwosu rather than start the ball with his defenders, would always launch the into the air so that players can engage themselves. And most times, Nigeria will lose possessions to opponent players.

On the other hand, the Flying Eagles forwards are wasteful, always failing to convert created chances. This was contained in a post by NPFLUpdates on Facebook app.

The forwards and offensive midfielders lacked precision and, most times volleys the ball into the stands behind the goal.

Coach Isah Ladan Bosso is expected to fix some of these identified issues before the must-win fixture against Senegal on Friday.
