Not every player can handle Super Eagles pressure, Friday Ekpo warns Maja, Okoye and co


Former Nigeria midfielder, Friday Ekpo, has urged Super Eagles Coach, Gernot Rohr not to put pressure on the newly invited players in Tuesday’s international friendly against Ukraine.

In a chat with Ekpo said the coach should endeavour to encourage players that will play and give more opportunities to truly get the best out of them so they are able to replicate the form that earned them the call ups.


“The new ones invited should not be put under pressure to get a win at all cost. Because invitation to the national team and having opportunities to play is not easy; that place is like hot seat.”
