Practice Penalty Udeze

Former Super Eagles left-back Ifeanyi Udeze has warned the Super Eagles players currently participating in the ongoing Africa Cup of Nations to learn how to take penalties as the tournament has reached its knockout stage.

The 38-year-old, who was a part of the Nigerian team that participated in the 2002 FIFA World Cup, revealed that the 2004 Nations Cup team – which he was a part of – didn’t prepare for penalties and so lost out to Tunisia at the semifinal stage through penalties.

Recall that Nigeria played a one all draw with Tunisia at full time and went into a penalty shoot-out which ended 5-3 in favour of Tunisia who went on to win the 2004 AFCON title.

“The truth is that we didn’t prepare for a penalty shoot-out that year. Allourmind was that we will win all our games in full time.

“But the mistake we made was that whether or not we prefered to win our matches in full time, we should still have prepared.
