Eagles were shy, Kalu

Pillar of  Sports, Dr. Orji Uzor Kalu, Tuesday, bewailed Nigeria’s inability to lift the Nations Cup, blaming it on Eagles shy tactics. Kalu who spoke in Onitsha Anambra State said the team had everything going for them especially in the first game against Egypt.

FOOTBALL FOR ANAMBRA ••• Former Governor of Abia State and leader of PPA, Orji Uzor Kalu, campaigning with a soccer ball in Anambra State where their candidate Mrs. Uche Ekwunife is among the front-runners. Kalu turned football around in Abia, leading Enyimba to be Nigeria's first club to win African Champions League. He says Anambra may repeat the feat with Ekwunife in office as governor.

“They came out smoking against Egypt and scored a great goal. That was the only goal the eventual champions conceded if you remove the own goal against Cameroun. The  Pharaohs were not so confident in that game until they noticed their foes did not go for the kill’, Kalu said.

The ex- governor said the Eagles also failed history.“It was first time Ghana would score before Nigeria in the Natons Cup and first time Nigeria would lose to the defending Nations Cup champions.
