Lagos - Nigeria defender Godfrey Oboabona admitted the Super
Eagles were not at their best in the victory over Chad, but promised they would
be better against Tanzania.
The Nigerian national team is going through somewhat of a
rebuilding phase after failing to qualify for the 2015 African Cup of Nations
tournament in Equatorial Guinea.
The Super Eagles got their qualification campaign for AFCON
2017 underway with a labored 2-0 win over Chad, and Oboabona conceded they were
not good enough.

"It was a bit difficult match for us but we were still
able to get the three points we needed from the match," he told Complete
"It was a good result for us but we will continue to
work hard and make sure we beat Tanzania in our next game.
"This is our first match and one will expect that we
spend some time to get into the game but I want to assure Nigerians that
Nigeria will be in Gabon for the Nations Cup.
"I am a Nigerian and I will always be ready to play for
my country any time I am called upon. It is a great honour to play for this
great nation," he concluded.For
