Osayi-Samuel Opens Up On Guinea Bissau Performance

Super Eagles defender, Bright Osayi-Samuel, has opened up on the team’s performance in the 1-0 win over Guinea Bissau on Monday.

The Super Eagles recovered from a shock 1-0 loss in Abuja on Friday to regain top  position in the group.

Osayi-Samuel won the penalty that allowed Moses Simon to score the only goal of the game.

“I think it was an amazing feeling coming back with a win especially when they beat us at home in Abuja,”Osayi-Samuel told NFF TV.

“For us as a team we really want to comeback with a win. It will give us the confidence to face the other games and qualify for the AFCON.

“When I got the ball I saw there was space and move into the box. In our trainings the coach always want me to attack and defend as well,”added Osayi-Samuel.

“When I had the ball, I saw it as an opportunity for me to attack. My initial plan was to dribble past the defender but he brought me down.

“Like I said I tried to give my best to the team and I’m happy that we won.”

The 25-year-old has now impressed in his first three games for the Super Eagles after making his debut against Portugal.

“I feel comfortable in the team, even right from the first camp in Portugal. I feel like I have been here for so long already. The players here have been friendly,”

Osayi-Samuel plays his club football in Turkey on the books of Fernabache.
