A member of the technical crew of the Super Eagles has revealed to owngoalnigeria.com that the coaches lament dropping some home base players for the duo of Aaron Samuel and Fanendo Adi.

Owngoalnigeria.com sort to know why Adi and Samuel didn’t make the match day squad for the back to back games against Egypt and the coach speaking on the condition of anonymity said it was down to poor form.

“Aaron Samuel and Fanendo Adi did nothing spectacular in training to warrant a spot in the team, they were off the pace as a matter of fact even the basic drills we did for strikers they were the worst” He told owngoalnigeria.com

“If we had known we would have kept some home based players like Osas Okoro who did very well in camp and some few others instead of having foreign based players who can’t break into the team, we strongly regret their inclusion”.

We can also confirm that during training sessions in Abuja and Kaduna Samuel looked heavily overweight why Adi was very slow and doesn’t look quite fit or strong for the demands of Africa football.
