Ex- International, Jonathan Akpoborie has said the Super Eagles need the experience of foreign professionals to excel.
He said this when speaking at the National Team's camp in the Metropolitan Hotel, Calabar on Tuesday morning.
While noting that the home-based professionals have the quality, he insisted that Keshi needs more Euro-based professionals to add experience to the team.
"I have watched the team keenly and objectively and I think it's very encouraging but I think we still need more foreign based professionals in the team because of their experience."
He added that "I don't have any person in mind but I trust that Keshi has the experience to call up those that will add value to the team."
Time to blend
The former International called on Nigerians to give the Super Eagles time to blend.
Akpoborie, who was at the camp to encourage the players spoke said he was delighted at what he has seen in the national team, urging Nigerians to give the Stephen Keshi led technical crew room to excel.
He said he sympathises with Nigerians' desperation for victory in all international engagements but warned that it is a new dawn and the crew and players must be given time to blossom.
