Exclusive: Dont Judge Super Eagles On Guinea Defeat In Friendly  Unuanel

Former Kwara United coach, Samson Unuanel has urged Nigerians not to judge the Super Eagles based on los to Guinea in a warm up game ahead of the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations.

Recall that Guinea defeated Nigeria 2-0 on Monday thanks to goals from Aguibou Camara in the 14th minute and Facinet Cont in the 64th minute.

Mondays defeat is coming hours after the Super Eagles wallopped a Dubai-based club 12-0 in another friendly tie.

However, in a chat with Completesports.com, Unuanel stated that friendly match is only meant to help the team fine tune their strategy without putting so much importance on the result.

You cant judge a team or any coach with the result of a friendly game. Friendly game is friendly, it is not a game you use all your arsenal.

It is not a game you do everything that you must win. It is a game to correct some certain things and to put things aright.

So the result against Guinea is not all that is important as far I am concern. The most important thing is the tournament proper where you can judge the team.

Nigeria, winners of the tournament in 2013, are in Group A alongside the host nation; Guinea-Bissau and Equatorial Guinea.

They begin their quest for a fourth continental title on Sunday, January 14th against Equatorial Guinea.
