Good morning everyone
It was a good feeling to beat the defending champions and move higher up the table, closing in on the point gap between us and the leaders. What looked insurmountable after matchday 4 is looking achievable just 4 matchdays in.
Aigbogun 2.0 came with a good physical interface upgrade. He is looking very nice and foreign in his sky blue shirt and dark blue trousers. I am sure those were also made in Aba, besides football, we make such nice clothes too. We got him talking after the victory and he had a few things to say on his lineup, his first half substitution, the game in Kano and his appointment as the Flying Eagles’ coach.
“It was a tough game and we expected it to be so. I made some changes to accommodate a few players returning from injury and some others cannot play all the time. The away game was a lot more defensive but this wasn’t.
“I had to pull Uche John out because it just wasn’t his game today. We want to score more but the most important thing is to win the game. We want to win every game and we will go to Kano with an attitude to win the game. Pillars are a good team but we believe we can leave with something.”
“It is an honor to be a national team coach especially in a country like Nigeria where there are so many good coaches. I am very happy and I thank God.”
Inasmuch as we would not like to lose any game anywhere, we believe we can get points (in plural) from anywhere. We can even start that from Kano. It’s not a pipe dream, we have done it before and if we are at our best, the best we know we are capable of, we can leave Kano while preserving our unbeaten tag.
On the gaffer and his appointment, Congratulations are in order as this new phase of flying Eagles managerial portfolio comes to the fore. It is by no means an easy job but we trust that he can effectively groom the next generation of the Super Eagles.
