All seems not to be well with football at Super Eagles level since that sudden ouster, at the round of 16 teams by half strength Tunisia, even without the services of their head coach who was held down by Covid 19.
Since the loss, players have turned against each other blaming each other especially the goalie, Maduka Okoye,who some players and fans alike blamed as the major factor that contributed in the country’s early exit from the competition she started on strong and clean note from group stage.
However players like Omeruo Kenneth and few others had emphatically defended that it was not the fault of the goal keeper for the goal which turned a winning one, insisting that the goal can beat any goal tender.
Omeruo added that after all, all the defenders were standing in Okoye’s front and could has stopped the goal as well. He then called for understanding that in every game you win some and lose some. He further appealed for great understanding among all, so that the team would smart out of the unfortunate debacle and move forward for crucial and critical assignment citing the March World Cup play –off against Ghana.
“ As it is today, the 2021 AFCON has long become history for Nigeria. The best approach in my opinion would be for my follow players to ensure all nerves are clamed down  so that the team would be one for the tasks ahead. It is not healthy to continue to cry over spilled milk as such would do more harm for the team. I will urge my fellow teammates to brace up, mend fences and let’s squarely face our future,” Omeruo ruins.

“I’m ruining for the future of the team which is more important for the country and anything short of that would not be good enough for the country and her flagship team. As one of the senior members of the present Super Eagles team. I appealed to my fellow teammates to forget all that happened during the better forgotten Cameroon 2021 AFCON and like great sportsmen, take it as one of those things. We must come together and recapture the love amongst us players in our camp. Such atmosphere that prevails in our camps these while as the best way to continue,” the ace central defender appeals.
