Sports It is very disturbing that Nigeria is struggling in the Nations Cup qualifiers - Adepoju

Ex international Mutiu Adepoju has expressed concerns that Nigeria is struggling in the 2015 African Nations Cup qualifiers.

Nigeria is currently third having gotten just one point from their two games against Congo and South Africa.

Adepoju argued that it is a panic situation to realize that Nigeria is behind Congo and South Africa.

“I am very worried about the whole situation because it doesn’t make for good reading,” Adepoju was quoted as saying on Vanguard Sports.

“I don’t mean to disrespect the teams we played against but as African champions, one would have expected we got something out of those games, but we didn’t. It is very disturbing.”

Adepoju also noted that the unresolved coaching situation between Stephen Keshi and the football federation is not helping matters.

“The whole situation certainly calls for concern,” he says.

“First Keshi doesn’t even know whether he’s got a job or not, and there doesn’t seem to be anyone who could do anything about it because of the crises at the Glass House,” he added.

And once again, we're back to the calculator and permutations. Chidi, if Nigeria plays... Tochukwu, if Angola draw against... Time for spiritual requests.
