Nigeria vs Tunisia: What Sadiq Umar informed me about being selfish– Eguavoen


Augustine Eguavoen has actually revealed what striker, Sadiq Umar told him about being selfish in front of objective.

Eguavoen said the Almeria frontman told him that as a striker, he first thinks about scoring prior to thinking about offering assists to his colleagues.

Appearing before journalism ahead of Super Eagles’ round of 16 clash with Tunisia on Sunday night, Eguavoen said he has attempted to let the Olympic Bronze medalist understand that it should rather be a team work.

Eguavoen, a 1994 AFCON winner, was asked why he had a lengthy conversation with Sadiq during one of the group’s training sessions ahead of Tunisia clash

“He also informed me that as a striker first thing in his mind is to score objectives, I said that’s an instinct, that’s normal however it’s the team,” he stated.

Speaking even more, the coach stated he encouraged the Spain-based striker to score whenever he has the chance to do so, adding, “don’t let what other people are speaking about you trouble you”.

Sadiq scored the opener for Nigeria against Guinea-Bissau in their last Group D video game on Wednesday.
