Speaking on preparation by the Nigerian team, Amuneke assured soccer fans that there is no cause for alarm.
“I don’t think Nigerians should panic over the team’s 2-0 loss against South Africa in Uyo considering the fact that he played the game with relatively unknown players,” Amuneke told Vanguard.
“I believe the Super Eagles Technical Adviser, Gernot Rohr must have learnt from the errors that occurred in the match and will seek ways to redeem his image by ensuring the team qualify for the Nations Cup in Cameroon.”
