Super Eagles loss to Serbia may not have come as a surprise to many because even the friendly matches won were not as a result of an impressive display.
Serbia rates low to the teams Nigeria has been grouped alongside in forthcoming World Cup and although it may be unfair to judge based on warm-up friendly matches there are still many things to be catered for as they prepare for the major tournament come June.
John Mikel Obi was missing in both friendly matches (Poland and Serbia) due to needing to secure work permit where he plies his trade in China.
His absence exposed the midfield with fans being critical of Joel Obi and Onazi’s contributions to the team. Moses has not been so effective in his role with Super Eagles and Iwobi struggled in both matches.
The keeper, in particular, was being criticized and a lot of fans are being skeptical about him representing the Super Eagles in Russia.
Well, maybe Nigerian Super Eagles are not expected to come home with the trophy, but we would like to become the first African nation to reach the Semi-final, and why not when we have reached that stage.
But then, this current Super Eagles team looks like they are going to Russia to play three friendly matches and then return home.
Unless someone else has a contrary opinion, Super Eagles are far from ready
