Former Nigeria international, Mutiu Adepoju has described the Super Eagles’ friendlies against Poland and Serbia as warning going into the 2018 World Cup.
The Super Eagles could not replicate the 1-0 win they had against Poland last week Friday as they lost 2-0 to Serbia on Tuesday at the Hive in London.
Two second half goals from Fulham striker Aleksandar Mitrovic, secured the win for Serbia who dominated the game from start to finish.
Reacting to the double header friendlies in an exclusive phone interview with Pilot Sports, Adepoju, who was in the Super Eagles squad to the France 1998 FIFA World Cups, stated it will only impact positively going into the World Cup.
“Both friendlies were fantastic and it served as a serious warning to prepare very well before the game,” Adepoju told this medium.
“You cannot rate players in just one or two games. But for me, I believe we need to improve on our preparation before the mundia.”
The 1994 African Cup of Nations champion went on to praise the performance of Deportivo Lacorona goalkeeper Francis Uzoho in the two friendlies.
“I believe Francis Uzoho has done well for Super Eagles in the two games and he deserves commendation. He made many fantastic saves against Poland, I think he should be commended for that.”
