Home-based Super Eagles have been hailed by several football enthusiasts for their victory over Equatorial Guinea, pointing out that the Eagles have improved with each game.
It was in a 2018 African Nations Championship (CHAN) Group C clash in Morocco that the home-based Eagles came from a goal down to beat Equatorial Guinea 3-1 on Tuesday at Agadir.
Victory for Nigeria sealed their place in the knockout stages as group winners, with goals from Anthony Okpotu, Ekundayo Ojo and Rabiu Ali condemning Nzalang Nacional to a third straight defeat.
A cross-section of football enthusiasts in Abuja noted that the Eagles were more impressive against the Guineans.
Some of the respondents added that the team have been growing in confidence right from their very first match.
The Super Eagles will next meet the runners-up from Group D which has Angola, Congo and Burkina Faso still in the running for places in the knockout stages.
