President of the Nigeria Football Federation said the spirit of the team has been restored after the World Cup qualification failure
The Super Eagles looked much improved against Ecuador despite starting on the back foot.
Once the Nigerians took control of the game, they created many chances and looked dangerous.
NFF President, Amaju Pinnick said it was a good outing and one that has given the team confidence going into the AFCON qualifiers against Sierra Leone and São Tomé and Principé.
“I am happy and I can tell you that we fulfilled our objectives of restoring the spirit of the Super Eagles following the failure to qualify for the FIFA World Cup.
“We lost both games against Mexico and Ecuador narrowly but we were up for it and never finished on the back foot. Given the number of first-team players that were not available, we have to praise the boys who showed up here and gave their all.
“They have given us confidence going into the Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers. The despondency is over and we can now march forward in sure-footed manner,” he said after the game against Ecuador.
