There were so many unanswered questions yesterday for Nigeriaâ€™s coach, Lars Lagerback, over the fitness of his players in their annoying 2-1 loss to Greece.
Lagerback had repeatedly said that there were no injury worries in his team, noting that the Eagles MUST beat Greece. During the trainings that were opened to the press, he never engaged the team on serious tactical trainings apparently to avoid being spied by others.
But there are serious questions following the self-inflicted injuries on Taiye Taiwo and Elderson Echiejile on the fitness of the players. Foreign journalists asked me over and over yesterday on what happened to the team. â€œWhere they physically fit for this match?
Was this the same team that sparkled against Argentina and gave so much hope? Is Lagerback going to be retained after this abysmal performance?
Too many questions and only the Nigeria Football Federation boss who is seeking re-election and Lars Lagerback are in a better postion to answer them
