Nigeria’s Supersand Eagles head coach, Adamu Audu Ejo, is positive his side will not stay off the Copa podium for a long time, reports supersport.com.

Eagles defeated their Lebanese counterparts 7-4 yesterday to finish the championship in the second spot behind winners, Cote d’Ivoire, at the 2015 Copa Lagos.

Ejo said his side had a better performance in their last two matches against England and Lebanon after an opening match loss to eventual winners, Cote d’Ivoire.

“After we lost the first match to Cote d’Ivoire we went back to the drawing board and came out with a much improved performance in the last two matches against England and Lebanon.

“Ivory Coast are inviting me in May. I hope to go there to retrieve the trophy right there in their backyard.

“I pray the league starts in time. I am sure with the new players and experienced ones we will in a short time reclaim dominance of the annual championship,” Ejo said.

For two years running, Nigeria has played second fiddle to their West African rivals.
Nigeria came out tops in the first three editions in 2011, 2012 and 2013 while Cote d’Ivoire won in 2014 and now again in 2015.
