Eagles need Echiejile’s experience in Russia – Babayaro

Former Super Eagles’ leftback Celestine Babayaro believes the national team will immensely benefit from the experience of players like Elderson Echiejile and expressed satisfaction over the inclusion of the Cercle Brugge defender in the provisional list released on Monday.

The experienced and widely traveled Echiejile was given a chance by Rohr to do battle with new boy Bryan Idowu for a place in the Eagles’ leftback position.

Babayaro however believes that the player’s experience will be very crucial, having played for the country for a very long time and can stand in as a motivator to the young players.

“He may not be having the best of times at his club but he is fit and highly experienced. You can’t buy that; you have to earn it and he has done well for himself. In a young squad like ours, you need a player like Echiejile, “ Babayaro told Owngoal.
