Former Super Eagles midfielder, Mutiu Adepoju says the team was fired up against Ukraine, playing a fast, high quality and well orchestrated first 45 minutes in the 2-2 draw.
In a chat with footballlive.ng, Adepoju said, “The team was compact in the first half, breaking into counter attack very often and getting the lead which was very good.
“In the second half they slowed down a bit with the changes but I still saw a good team for the future.”
The veteran also advised Super Eagles Head Coach, Gernot Rohr to review the game and make amends where necessary, moving forward.
“Conceding two goals in the second half within a minute, I believe the coach should watch it and try to correct that. Nevertheless, I believe it was a very good game against a strong tactical team.”
He also expressed his satisfaction with the performance of the new players, singling out Semi Ajayi, Victor Osimhen and Joe Aribo who scored the first goal.
“I believe we have good players that can sit in during the 2021 qualifiers.”
