Henry Nwosu wants the Nigerian national team to be strengthened with a new crop of players after they ended in third place at the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations (Afcon).

The West Africans finished second behind Madagascar with six points in the group stage, beat Cameroon in the Round of 16 and South Africa in the quarter-final to reach the last four of the tournament.

Gernot Rohr’s men then lost to Algeria, in a game dominated by the Desert Foxes, before defeating Tunisia in Wednesday’s third/fourth-place play-off.

“We thank God we got the bronze, it is welcomed. They should be praised but I must confess, we didn’t play too well in the tournament, even in our last game,” Nwosu told Goal.

“I think the coach should work on the players individually and as a team so that by the time they come out to play again they will perform better.

“Rohr must bring in new players to fortify the team from abroad or from Nigeria to challenge the present players on the ground.”

Nigeria will be expected to start their preparation in earnest for the 2022 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers. (Goal)
