Nigeria was defeated 2-1 by Algeria in the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations Semifinal.

And the Super Eagles are now set to play against Tunisia in the Third-Place Playoff.

Which is why former Nigeria international Mutiu Adepoju has asked to see more goals.

“For the team’s ability to bounce back from Algeria’s loss will depend on the capacity of the psychologists in the team, it’s a big blow,” Adepoju told Goal.

“They need to summon the courage and forget what has happened. It is another game that will give us the opportunity to win the bronze medal. They should play well and play compact.”

The former player explained: “They need to have more dominance and take their chances. They should try to create more chances and score goals.”

“It is how to create the goals and how to get the ball in the opponent’s area and perform better than the opponents.”

“We should have a way of creating chances, working our way through the opposition’s defense but we don’t have goalscoring problems,” he concluded.
