Enyeama: Fatigue caught up with Eagles

Super Eagles captain Vincent Enyeama pointed to fatigue to explain the Super Eagles’ somewhat lethargic performance against Tahiti.Enyeama-vincent

A 6-1 win against the amateurs from Oceania looked jerky in patches as the Nigerian strikers wasted a host of opportunities, and Enyeama said jet lag took its toll “It was obvious that we were struggling,” Enyeama said.

“There was fatigue in the brain and all parts of the body.

“But we are happy we scalled through and we are happy it’s Tahiti we played first, so we thank God for getting them first in the draw.

“We don’t really care about the goals. What mattered was getting the three points.”

The goalkeeper was even more disappointed to have conceded a goal to a side  full of amateurs, but refused to blame anyone.

“I am always disappointed at conceding goals, but you cannot blame anybody because this game was not a normal game.

“People coming off a very long, stressful journey then playing in such a short time. But we are happy to get this behind us.

“Now we need to go back, take enough rest, get massages and prepare for the next game,” he adds.
