The widespread of the Covid-19 pandemic forced football to be temporarily put on hold thus making the Super Eagles play just four games in 2020.
In a friendly match, the West African team was defeated by AFCON reigning champions Algeria before going on to play against Tunisia in a match that ended in a draw.
Nigeria, who have won the AFCON three times, registered consecutive draws against Sierra Leone in their Africa Cup of Nations qualifying match, coupled with their disappointing 4-4 draw in Benin City against the same opponent after taking a four-goal lead in the match.
Former Nigerian forward Obasi gave praises for the performances of the current national team players, while also claiming that work needs to be done to strengthen up the team.
“At the same time, I think we have a great team, it’s all about finding a way to get the best out of the boys, I just think that’s the key.
“And sometimes, there are places where you need experience, but it’s not my job; I’m just a spectator watching from outside and it is a different ball game when you are with the team. But I wish them all the best next year.”
In his international career, Obasi has been able to register 26 appearances for the Super Eagles finding the back of the net four times.
Having formerly played for German clubs Hoffenheim and Schalke 04, the Chinedu Obasi, who is also known as Edu, is currently playing for Austrian Bundesliga club SCR Altach.
