“No Special Formula For Winning Games” – Finidi


Super Eagles Coach, Finidi George has stated that there is no special formula for winning matches in football.

Super Eagles on Monday lost 2-1 to Benin Republic in their Matchday 4 of the 2026 FIFA World qualifier game in Abidjan.

He identified commitment as one of the major reasons the Super Eagles failed to perform. Finidi George during the post match conference said, “Yeah, it’s to win, but there’s no special formula for that,” Finidi admitted. “We have to see how the players will start the new season and see how we can get the best out of the players.”

“So everybody must be committed. I think with that commitment we’ll win games. I believe we’re going to win games.”

He continued, “And if we can win games, the battle will still be there. “So we can’t throw in the towel, because we’ve had only three points. We have to find a way to get these players back.”

The 2023 African Nations Cup silver medalists are placed fifth with just three points from four games. Less fancied Benin Republic topped Group C table with seven points while Lesotho are in second position with five points. Rwanda and South Africa have four points each with a game at hand.
