Ikechukwu Uche welcomes Super Eagles criticism

Super Eagle striker Ikechukwu Uche, who's still recovering from a knee injury has revealed his conviction that public and media criticism of the Super Eagles will help the team become better.

After the dramatic cliff hanger that the Super Eagles subjected Nigerians to in the 2010 World Cup qualification rounds, the Super Eagles have received mass criticism and even leading to calls for Amodu to be replaced. Here's what Uche had to say:

"All of Nigeria wants to see us win in the first half. They want to see us play good football, but other teams try to frustrate us and it is not easy. But the criticism is allowed. It is not something we should fight about. I don't think it is a problem for Nigerians to say the team is not playing well. For me I think that it is healthy. What it means is that we have to go back, watch our games and learn from our mistakes."

"Qualifying for the World Cup will give us confidence. It will motivate us to do better. I think it is the only motivation we need as players.

It will make everybody come out and give out the best of what he has and that will see us playing good football for the fans."
