Don’t Get Carried Away By Egypt Victory Oramah Warns Eagles

By Caleb Ishaya

The Chairman of Oramah Football Academy, Abuja, Dr. Pat Ifeanyi Oramah has predicted that the Super Eagles of Nigeria would go far in the ongoing African Cup of Nations competition in Cameroon with great chances of conquering Africa if they avoid getting carried away with their victory over the highly rated Pharaohs of Egypt.

Oramah, who expressed deep satisfaction with the sterling performance of the Super Eagles in their opening match, commended the team for trouncing the star studded Pharaohs of Egypt in all the departments of the game and capping it with a sweet victory.

Speaking during a post match assessment with sports writers in Abuja, Dr. Oramah attributed the Eagles’ well deserved win over the Egyptians to the tight defense pragmatically coordinated by William Troost Ekong; good team spirit effectively displayed all over the pitch; well synchronized midfield led by Wilfred Ndidi and quality selection and needful substitutions made by the Augustine Eguavon led coaching crew.

In all, Dr. Oramah, a seasoned football analyst and administrator submitted that: “the Super Eagles played an excellent game. It is a thing of joy that our Eagles were able to subdue Egypt, the most successful team in the AFCON, parading highly rated players including Mo Salah of Liverpool but were completely outplayed by Nigeria. Coach Eguavon’s formation was good, hence the exciting and creative play by the players.

“Although the team lacked a play maker in the mould of Jay Jay Okocha , Wilson Oruma, and other notable creative midfielders, I want to caution the team against  overconfidence given that the tournament will get tougher as the competition progresses”.

The Oramah Football  Academy boss assured Super Eagles of the unflinching support and prayers of teeming Nigerian football lovers who he said, “are waiting anxiously for the team to bring home the coveted trophy”.
