Speaking ahead of tomorrow’s encounter, Did I added that the better side will emerge victorious, while he believes the players are not scared ahead of the matches ahead, even as he will continue to play his game which he hopes will help Nigeria emerge victorious.
“It’s football, we just have to go to the pitch to do what we can do what we know how to do best and the better side will win”.
“I don’t think we are scared because of the games:
“I just try to take things easy, study the type of plays around me and try to adapt to the environment”.
After Saturday’s game, the Nigeria contingent will fly to Egypt on Sunday aboard a chartered aircraft, for another week of intensive strategy and tactics perfection.
