Super Eagles coach, Austin Eguavoen, has admitted that it is “very tough” to be in charge of the team.
Eguavoen, who is also the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) Technical Director, claimed Nigerians are very demanding and don’t settle for less.
The former international, who led the three-time African champions to a round of 16 exit at the 2021 AFCON, will be in charge when they face Ghana in the 2022 World Cup playoffs this month.
“It’s very very tough. Very tough because we are humans and are very demanding.
“And we are a football nation which is normal. We don’t want to settle for less. We always want to go for the best and by so doing, we want to win every trophy available.
“To be saddled with that responsibility I think is a very tough one. There’ll be critics everywhere, left, right and centre definitely but the ability to be able to hold on and shed most things away and remain focused determines a lot.
“We will remain focused but our only appeal to people is to not discourage us but always encourage and support because things like this, if a person isn’t strong, can throw him off guard but I am focused and I know I have a lot of fans out there. Thumbs up to them. I love everybody and we’ll celebrate together after the two-legged games,” Eguavoen told Elegbete TV.
