The domestic players were surrendered by L. Tree in Los Angeles as they prepare for the 2021 Concacaf Gold Cup starting Saturday.
Former Nigerian U-17 and U20 coach John Oboho has praised the performances of Nigerian Professional Football League players in Sunday’s international friendly against Mexico.
Although Grant Rohr’s organization suffered a 4-0 defeat to the North Americans, Obo emphasized that the encounter would enhance the experience of the home-grown players.
Hector Herrera’s double and lone goals from Rosario Finis Mori and Jonathan Dos Santos helped Mexico dominate three African nations at the Los Angeles Coliseum, one match from start to finish.
“We have to look at it from a lot of angles, despite the fact that calling him was such a quick process,” Oboho said. the aim.
“It still has its advantages, it depends on the angle at which anyone looks at it. But in my opinion, I don’t think it was because they weren’t called to the camp in a hurry.”
“We know the Super Eagles are not like a club where you bring in players and camp for a long time. We may see the result as not a good one, but at least we have managed to create harmony.
“There is no way that the players who went on this trip will not get anything out of it, if not for some other reason, they have been able to visit the United States,” he said. Once you get that kind of advantage as a player, it exposes you even more.
Obo, who led Nigeria to second place in the FIFA U17 World Cup 2009 on home soil, is supporting NPFL players to perform better in the future if given a second chance. ۔
The 61-year-old added: “These players who have traveled to Mexico to play, if they get another chance and you take them to play, the result we will get will not be the same.”
“You will see a better result that will have to be revealed with what they were able to achieve. I want to look at the positive side.
Rohr’s regular squad of squads was not available for the encounter as he prepares to start the pre-season with his clubs.
