Super Eagles assistant coach, Finidi George has expressed satisfaction with the performance of the team in the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers.
Recall that the three-time AFCON champions began their campaign with a 2-1 win over Sierra Leone before thrashing Sao Tome 10-0 in Morocco.
Osimhen put Nigeria on its way against Sao Tome and Principe with the opener in the ninth minute and scored his fourth in the 84th minute to make it 9-0. Emmanuel Dennis netted a penalty in injury time for Nigeria’s 10th. Terem Moffi scored twice and Moses Simon, Oghenekaro Etebo and Ademola Lookman were the other goal-scorers.
In a post on his official Facebook handle, the former Ajax star stated that he prays for better days ahead with the team.
“What a great opportunity and great start for the new Super Eagles. I pray for better days ahead on my new appointment as assistant coach,” Finidi wrote on his Facebook page.
The Super Eagles will return to action with a double-header against the Djurtus of Guinea-Bissau in September.
