Green also praised the Super Eagles for showing the right attitude to decisively see off Liberia and qualify for the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations.

He told that the players were determined to avoid the mistakes that cost them the 2012 ticket from repeating itself, and in doing so, sent the right signal.

“The players were hungry for victory and played as if their lives depended on it,” he said.

“They left nothing to chance and that was their attitude on the pitch, as they clearly wanted to make up for missing the last edition.

“The early goal opened the floodgates and from then, it was more or less a practice session for them,” Green added.
