Super Eagles Players Lack Right Mentality, Says Eguavoen


Ex-Super Eagles coach Augustine Eguavoen has berated the Super Eagles players for lacking the right mentality to prosecute their matches in the 2026 FIFA World Cup Qualifiers.

According to Eguavoen, the Super Eagles players should approach any game like a final adding that the team has the right players to seal qualification ticket to the showpiece event.

He said: “I talk about character and changing the mentality. When we play against minors ‘small teams’ this is always our performance. Even when we play against big teams, we intend to raise our game.

“We should approach every game like a final game. Once you do that, I don’t think there will be any problem. We have all it takes. I’m not being political. I have been a professional all my life and I will try to speak the truth. I’m not perfect.

“If you just change that mindset, the way you play against Ghana, Brazil, and Tunisia, that’s the same way you have to approach small countries as well.”
