AFCON 2023: Super Eagles must start scoring goals – Osayi-Samuel

Bright Osayi-Samuel has said it is important for the Super Eagles to start converting their chances at the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations.

The Super Eagles have struggled in front of goal in the competition despite the glut of attacking talents at the disposal of head coach, Jose Peseiro.

The three-time champions have scored two goals from open play, with the other coming from a penalty.

They were guilty of wasting several scoring chances in their three group games.

With the competition now at the knockout phase, Osayi-Samuel has harped on the need for the team to improve on their finishing.

“In general I think we played well; we had a clean sheet, so it’s positive in terms of the defence,” the Fenerbahce star said on NFF TV.

“Collectively we had many chances and we know we will get chances in every game with the quality that we have and I think it’s about converting those chances.

“Overall, the game (against Guinea-Bissau) was good, it’s a learning curve now to see what we can improve to do better in our next game against Cameroon.“

The Super Eagles will take on Cameroon in a Round of 16 contest at the Felix Houphouet Boigny Stadium, Abidjan, on Saturday night.
