The team B of the Super Eagles of Nigeria were slowly running away with a win in yesterday’s practice match during the training session of the Super Eagles before Joel Obi was switched to the A team.
Obi started the game in midfield for the B team, and before his substitution they were leading 1-0 with his hardworking display helping his side to switch from defence to attack with ease as he dominated the midfield duels.
Coach Gernot Rohr was somehow impressed by his performance and moved him to the A team in place of Ogenyi Onazi, and he immediately helped stabilise the midfield of the A team who were nowhere near their best when he was playing against them.
His introduction helped them claw their way back into the game, and they eventually won the session 3-1. A scoreline which angered many players of the B team who were unhappy over the decision of Rohr to take Obi from their team.
One positive notice during the training session is the way the players played among themselves, with both teams displaying a high level of understanding in defence and even in attack.
