Nigerian players have a losing mentality — Udeze

Former Nigeria defender Ifeanyi Udeze claims the current squad has a defeatist mentality.

The Super Eagles’ losing streak continues after a 4-0 defeat to Portugal in an international friendly last week in Lisbon.

The team last won a game in June, when they defeated So Tomé and Principe 10-0 in the 2023 AFCON qualifiers.

Since then the team has gone five consecutive games without a win.

And speaking on Brila FM, Udeze berated the Eagles players for playing without seriousness.

“I want to agree that they have losing mentality but it is not just that, when you look at the players they don’t play like anything is at stake. They just come and play whatever want to happen let it happen, no seriousness.

“If they put in more seriousness and play together as a team, because when you look at them they play individual football and there is no way you play individual football and win it’s not possible.

“I don’t believe the Super Eagles players want to lose but the thing is that they play individual football and until they change that mentality nothing will change.”
