Erico, who praised the team for  winning their 2018 World Cup qualifiers against Zambia and Algeria, said there should be competition  for roles in the Eagles.

“The Eagles are beginning to fly but they can do more than they have already done,” Erico told our correspondent.

“The team is not  there yet  as some  people  think. They need more reinforcements in the areas of perceived weaknesses.

“The defence is not yet as solid as the days when we had the likes of late Stephen Keshi and Uche Okechukwu.

“The team Gernot Rohr is having now is looking like the old Eagles but they  still have a long way to go. The team should have reinforcements in every department  to enable the players to  compete for roles.”

The former Eagles goalkeeping coach  added, “The Eagles lagged  behind the best on the continent and their  newfound success  should not be taken for granted. The success should be built upon and sustained through the reinforcements ahead of the other qualifiers.

“Players from the domestic league  too should be given a chance to compete with their  overseas-based  counterparts  for starting roles. Rohr should not depend entirely on the overseas-based professionals.”
