Super Eagles players who featured in Sunday’s international friendly against South Africa have expressed satisfaction with the draw.

A source hinted that the players were happy to avoid a second defeat.

The position of the players countered that of assistant coach, Daniel Amokachi, who was not happy that the team conceded a late minute goal.
