President of the Super Eagles Supporters Club (SESC), Prince Vincent Okumagba believes that the Super Eagles team will bounce back into reckoning in the nearest future as the team prepares to face headlong the Black Stars of Ghana in March for Qatar 2022 World Cup play-off.
Okumagba in an exclusive telephone discussion restated that he believes the players and their officials may have found out what went wrong in the round of 16 game where the half strength Tunisian team booted the potential AFCON 2021 team out of the summit.
“With the kind of sober reflection had been the lot of the players since after the sudden and painful ouster, the boys would leave no stone turned in subsequent meets if only to redeem themselves.
“The boys  would love to be in the forthcoming World Cup festival in UAE later in the year. It is on that inflammable premise therefore, I’m optmestic that with great planning against Ghana yet another arch rival, the Super Eagles would triumph enroute to Qatar,” Okumagba said.
The SESC supremo gave some insight also on his declaration on the Super Eagles that most of the players currently in the team are mixed of experienced and young and would confront the enumerous with all excel and clam to dwarf any opponent on her way. These would be reality only through hard work, focus and determination via total concentration, sound technical and tactical approach deployed.
He insisted that there must also be a different approach to future matches if the country hopes to shake off the  surprise package Tunisia’s Carthage Eagles shocked the Nigerian side at ongoing AFCON 2021 in Cameroon. 
He stressed further that the country is blessed with listening NFF led by Amaju Pinnick who does not joke with the welfare of the players and officials  be it in championship situation or qualifiers.
“Amaju Pinnick, to be fair to him and his executive committee have done better and have listening ears too. It will be great if the Eagles and their official would reciprocate such guester by delivering the Qatar 2022 World Cup ticket against Ghana in the play-off which would be so smoothening enough,” he restated.
Okumagba also called on the NFF to ensure quick resolution on who leads the team subsequently. Eguaveon the interim coach was not forthcoming decisively, tactically and technically during the Tunisia game, saying he believes Eguaveon has learnt that difficult f great lop in a game he would have won in the first half.
“This naught issue is our headache presently, I know though that the NFF and sundry are working round the clock to effectively fill the gap.
We need sound bench to face Ghana squarely. No half measures this time, not again,” Okumagba consels.
