Former captain of Nigeria, Joseph Yobo has criticized the team for their poor performance despite beating Guinea-Bissau by 1-0 on Monday.
The Super Eagles had to rely on an own goal scored by Oge Sangante to record the needed victory which gave them the ticket to the Round of 16.
Ywith the progression noted that the team still need more cohesion and be decisive in attack.
“It was not a convincing victory even though we got the deserved result we needed. The team still need more cohesion because from the midfield, we are yet to get it right,” Yobo followed chairman.
“However, we have more attacking players than midfield players. But then, when Iwobi picks, I am sure the team will create more goal scoring chances.
“I think keeping a clean sheet is another positive result from today’s game and it shows the defence is doing something good.”
The Super Eagles will final confirm their next opponent on Cameroon after the Group C games are decided today.  They could face either of Cameroon, Guinea ot Senegal in the knockout stage billed for Saturday at Ebimpe.
