"We are going to the AFCON with an imbalance squad, we are taking too many strikers, we are lacking that creativity in the midfield where players can pass the ball forward and create chances to win games," he told Brila FM.

"We are going with too many side passes players, no disrespect to the players and we’ve been conceding goals left, right and centre. We should stop that because a solid defence is the benchmark to win a tournament.

“Also, it is a well known fact the problem we have in the goalkeeping department.

“So if you put all these together there are reasons to be worried but we are fans of the Super Eagles and we will support them."
