Former Super Eagles striker, Garba Lawal has said the Eagles must be clinical in front of goal if they hope to progress out of the group stages of the on-going African Cup of Nations.
Lawal was speaking ahead of the Eagles last group match against Ethiopia on Tuesday. Nigeria are without a win after playing two matches and will hope to defeat the Walyas Antelopes who returned to the African tournament after a 30-year hiatus.
The former Eagles utility player has said if the team hopes to get into the last eight, then there is the need to score more goals and remain defensive throughout the match.
"We always score first but it's like we relax after we score one goal, then we lose concentration in the last quarter of the match," Lawal said.
"We need to start taking our chances and hold on to the ball to the very end. In the match against Burkina Faso, we conceded in the final seconds, it shows that our mentality needs work. We need to know it is not over till it is over," Lawal continued.
