Three Key Things Super Eagles Need To Do In The Aftermath Of The AFCON The Super Eagles have participated in the AFCON tournament in Egypt as many Nigerians would have liked.

But the team left a lot to be desired from their darlings fans who were following their matches back home.

Even with the team's expectation and quality, there is the notion that the Super Eagles could not fly in Egypt as they lost 2-1 to Algeria.

Despite the 1-0 victory against Tunisia to claim the bronze medal in Egypt, the team has got a lot of work to do as we highlight the three key things the Super Eagles must do going forward.

Measure Of Experience

This is a major thing the Super Eagles side need ahead of the coming matches as this may be lacking at the moment.

Despite the quality, the team has got they were unable to deal with match pressure and expectation from the Super Eagles fans this led a narrow 1-0 wins against a side Burundi and Guinea.

This is not a good one even as experienced heads like forward Odion Ighalo and skipper John Obi Mikel bid farewell to the team.

There is the need for a blend of youth and experience so that talents like Samuel Kalu, Samuel Chukwueze, Alex Iwobi, Victor Osimhen, Ola Aina and Henry Onyekuru can excel.

Positive Character

The Super Eagles have got quality and there is no doubt about that. Players like Kalu, Iwobi and Ahmed Musa can run the show for the Super Eagles but something is still missing from the mix.

A positive character will make the difference for the team as talent even in abundance don’t win games alone.

There is the need for a change of paradigm in the Super Eagles if we are to experience the glory days as Nigeria continue to hold down the euphoria of the 1994 sets comprising Austin Okocha and late Coach Stephen Keshi.

More Friendly Matches

The need for friendly matches cannot be overlooked even as the team seeks redemption in the future.

This leaves the side with no option than to utilize the FIFA Window in the best possible way starting from September later in the year.

It will go a long way to play build the team psychology while giving them the room blend as a team.

There is the need for team understanding even as new players have a chance to be tested in the friendly games.
