Ex-Green Eagles winger, Adokiye Amiesimaka, says Nigeria's chances of qualifying for the 2018 World cup looks brighter with the 3-1 win over Algeria.
Amiesimaka, former team manager, Sharks football club of Port Harcourt, made the assertion on Saturday shortly after the Nigeria/Algeria match played at the Godswill Akpabio stadium, Uyo.
" I watched the game and I am very impressed with the outcome. Congratulations Super Eagles, congratulations Nigeria.
"The Algerians were not bad. They played in a rather tentative manner in the first 15 minutes, but we were on top of the game most of the time and the score line was reflective of that," he said.
Amiesimaka said the Eagles attack was good while the defence needed to be worked on for future matches.
" I suggest that Gernot Rohr, Super Eagles Manager, still need to work on the defence. The attack is okay; they were coordinated and did a good job.
" Our chances of qualifying for the next World Cup are very bright indeed," the ex-international said.
Nigeria leads their group with six points; While Cameroon is second with two points after playing 1-1 with Zambia in another group match on Saturday.
Zambia and Algeria have one point each.
