Former Nigerian winger, Tijani Bagangida believes the Super Eagles can learn from Morocco’s success at the just concluded 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar.
Recall that Morocco stunned the world when they became the first Africa side to reach the semi finals of the World Cup after an impressive display.
The Atlas Lions, who lost 2-1 to Croatia in the Third-Place, had earlier defeated teams such as Spain, Belgium and Portugal to reach the last four.
However, in a chat with Completesports.com, Babangida stated that the Super Eagles can study Morocco’s template which made the team a force to reckon with at the 2022 World Cup.
He also said that the players must display great commitment and hunger whenever they are called to the senior national team for any game.
“Morocco’s achievement at the 2022 World Cup is a big pride for Africa as a continent. They have shown that everything is possible with the right mentality and preparedness.
“Who says the Super Eagles can not learn from Morocco’s brilliant achievement at the World Cup? The truth is that our players must have a change of attitude towards games. They must exhibit that hunger, commitment and determination to give more than an 100% to their country of birth.
“This is exactly what the Moroccans did at the World Cup. Besides, the Super Eagles handler and the Nigerian Football Federation (NFF) must also tap players from the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) to make the team competitive.”
