Super Eagles defender, Chidozie Awaziem, has opened up on his national team debut, a 2-0 defeat to South Africa at the Godswill Akpabio stadium, Uyo in 2017, as his worst.
Speaking in a live Instagram chat with ng_supereagles on Monday, the Leganes defender said he was disappointed with his outing, but was quick to admit that he learned from the game.
“My bad day for the Super Eagles was the AFCON qualifier against South Africa, it wasn’t a good performance from me and it was my first game for the Eagles,” Awaziem stated.
“It didn’t go the way I would have wanted.
“I didn’t put on the full confidence that I should have, with some couple of bad passes and indecision. Also, I was trying to impress.
“At the end of the game, we lost and I wasn’t happy. But I’ve learned from it and it has now made me a better player.
“Also, my own goal against Lesotho was another bad day for me in the office.”
However, the 23-year-old added that his best game was at the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations against Cameroon.
He added, “My best game for the Eagles was against Cameroon at the AFCON and we won 3-2.
“That game really made my day.
“I was so tired playing against Christian Bassogog because I was running all the time to close him down but I had to give in my best and the game turned out the way we wanted.”
