Calabar - Rafiu Ladipo, President, Nigerian Football Supporters Club has urged Nigerians to remain hopeful in the present Super Eagles team.
He said in Calabar on Monday that Eagles coach Stephen Keshi had potentials to build a strong team.
He said Keshi was still building a new team and that fans in the country should remain optimistic on his ability to deliver.
‘’ We should be optimistic. Keshi is doing a good job, he is trying to build a new team, a team that is formidable and it will take time for us to get a perfect team .
‘’ So, what I want Nigerians to do is to be patient with Keshi . Let us give him our support. I do know that we will one day be happy and satisfied with the team.’’
Ladipo said the handlers of the Eagles should use the break period from now to September to work on all errors in the team.
He said apart from friendly matches arranged for the team, the technical crew should work on the scoring ability of the team.
‘’ For me, I think we have the ample time between now and September to prepare and play the next match.
‘’ There are some friendly matches that are being put together to put them in proper shape. And I think the Stephen Keshi -led technical crew will be able to do the job by strengthening the midfield and work on the scoring ability of his players.
