Former Nigeria international Sam Sodje said the Super Eagles were not convincing, despite recording a 2-1 win against Sierra Leone in Thursday’s Group A 2023 AFCON qualifier in Abuja.
Jose Peseiro secured his first win in a competitive game as Eagles coach following the win against the Leone Stars.
Sierra Leone took the lead less than 15 minutes into the game through Jonathan Morsay before Alex Iwobi equalised a few minutes later.
And with five minutes to the end of the first half Osimhen made it 2-1 to help the Eagles seal the three points.
And reflecting on the game Sodje speaking on Brila FM said:”I’m happy we won and congratulations to the new coaching crew but to be honest we must stop conceding goals left right and centre. We must be winning games convincingly.”
Sodje expressed confidence in new head coach Jose Peseiro positing he will surely come good.
“We need to give the coach the benefit of the doubt because he is still new in the job and he will get better.”
The Eagles next qualifying match is against Sao Tome and Principe in Morocco on Monday.
In Group A’s other game Guinea-Bissau came from a goal down to thrash Sao Tome and Principe 5-1.
