Ex-Falcons coach —Eagles match against Leone Stars, a disaster
NEWSMAN – Former coach of the Super Falcons, Godwin Izilein, describes Super Eagles 4-4 home draw with the Leone Stars of Sierra Leone as a “Football Disaster.”
The match, which was played at the Samuel Ogbemudia Stadium in Benin, saw the Leone Stars stage a remarkable comeback of 4 goal deficit to level the game.
Izilein said from the way the Super Eagles players executed the match, it was obvious that the players had been overrated.
However, according to him “This is what I call, football disaster; because of what we see these players play in their respective clubs, we tend to have overrated them, PUNCH reported.
“What happened today is a disaster and I hope that the players will now go to Sierra Leone to redeem their names, otherwise, that may well put paid to our going to Cameroon,” he added.
The Super Eagles, who started the game on a brilliant note, eventually ended up playing out to 4-4 draw, to make the reverse fixture in Freetown, Sierra Leone an uphill task.
