The immediate past manager of the Super Eagles of Nigeria has revealed that the missing out of Leicester City’s Defence midfielder Wifred Indidi affected his team’s ability to go through to the mundial.
Augustine lost his job after failing to secure a qualification to Qatar 2022.
The Nigerian skipper missed out the clash during Leicester City’s match in the conference league and was ruled out for some months.
“Imagine a Ghana without a Partey. Losing Ndidi was first of all a problem and then we make amends by bringing in Bonke who is a ball winner and then he got injured as well," Eguavoen said on SuperSport's Monday Night Football. The former manager continued.
“Onyeka was also on top of his game, also got injured so he had a bit of a problem”.
Etebo, who's just coming back from injury, played well in Kumasi when he came in but he only had to give us his best for the first sixty minutes.
"If you look at the bench now who would have come in? It's just to change formation within the players. At 1-1 we needed to get that one goal but it just didn't happen." Said, the past manager of the Super Eagles.
Ghana walked past the Nigerians after drawing 1:1 through the away goal rules.
