Bradley Tips Eagles For Excellence


Chief Coach of the Pharaohs of Egypt, Bob Bradley has tipped Nigeria’s Super Eagles to go places as Coach Steven Keshi continues with the rebuilding process of the senior national team.

The former Chief Coach of USA, was reacting to the performance of the Nigerian team after last week’s international friendly match in Dubai.

Bradley said he foresees the Nigerian side ruling African football in less than six months if the NFF is able to hold the team together.

“Wonderful players with wonderful skills that we could not match, they have a bright future if they stick together”, Bradley said after Nigeria lost the tie 3-2 to Egypt.

Meanwhile, the Eagles are lamenting losing the friendly, but have vowed to concentrate on their qualifiers for both the South Africa 2013 Nations Cup and the Brazil 2014 World Cup qualifying games.

Enyimba of Aba’s Henry Uche said: “The referee who handled our match against Egypt was poor, but I think we lost concentration at some point and that’s why they were able to get the last minute goal”.

Defender Azubuike Egwueke of Warri Wolves, believes the Egyptians were ordinary but were overrated by the team.

“I think we thought of them as the team that won two Cup of Nations back to back and it affected us, but we are learning fast and soon the world will see the real Super Eagles”.

Team skipper, Chigozie Agbuim, said he has learnt some lessons from the game but noted that the entire team caved in at the wrong time.

“We let our guards down thinking that we have drawn the game and we paid for it, I know that it won’t happen next time, because we have learnt this one the bitter way”, he said.
