Cape Town - Super Eagles defender, Azubuike Egwuekwe has pleaded with Nigerians to be patient with the team following their 2-1 loss to Mali in their first game of the African Nations Championship on Saturday.

Egwuekwe, who held his own in the face of misfiring mates and winger Ejike Uzoenyi  who was also impressive, said they have been talking to their teammates to wake up to the reality of playing at the big stage.

“We have decided that we will come back stronger and better. I plead with Nigerians to give us another opportunity“, Egwuekwe said. 

Uzoenyi on his part said experience counted aplenty in the game against Mali but assured that all hopes are not lost.

“We will be back and better in the next game” he said.

Nigeria will take on Mozambique in their second group game on Wednesday.
