Nigeria/Mexico friendly: It was a great experience for NPFL stars – Bright

Talks have not abated over the Home- Eagles 0-4 defeat to Mexico, in Saturday’s friendly match in California, USA. 
Joining the fray, albeit drawing positives from the game was former 3SC striker and presently on loan at Vandrezzer FC, Babatunde Bright. The left- footed attacker remarked that the game was a good learning experience for the NPFL stars, as it would put them on a good stead for future challenges.

” It was a good game. Our boys were jittery at the initial stages and couldn’t really play their game. However, I believe the exposure and experience would help them in future matches,” he quipped.
Speaking on the local league which he maintained is one of the best on the continent, Bright, however, admonished the NFF and LMC, to work more on the security and playing facilities at the league games venues. 

The strongly built striker who has often been likened to Inter Milan’s star Romelu Lukaku because of their similar playing styles and attributes, remarked, “There should adequate security of lives and properties at league match venues is very important. Recent violent happenings at match venues across the country is really bad.
” We also need top quality playing pitches. If you noticed during the game against Mexico, our boys found it difficult to get their rythmm because they obviously, are not used to playing on such surfaces,” the left-footed bomber, who is eyeing a summer transfer to a top foreign club added.
