The Super Eagles started their Brazil 2014 world cup journey on a shaky note as the Coach Stephen Keshi tutored side laboured to a lone goal victory over the Brave Warriors of Namibia
The Namibians indeed put up a brave performance but a 76th strike by Spain-based Ikechukwu Uche broke the deadlock after missing several goal scoring opportunities.
With the victory, the Super Eagles are occupying top spot in their group which also has Kenya, Malawi and of course Namibia.
Though happy that his team got the much needed victory, the Big Boss admitted that his lads will have to step up their game as they travel to face cranes of Malawi in their next fixture.
Chairman, Technical Committee of the Nigeria Football Federation, Chris Green, blamed hard luck for the slim win but was quick to add that the team will work on the lapses noticed in Sunday’s game.
