Former Coach of the Super Eagles Christian Chukwu has predicted that the Libyan National team will give the Eagles a tough time when both sides meet later in October.
According to Chukwu, he believes that the Libyan’s have a higher team spirit than Nigeria considering the fact that they’ve been consistent with the groups’ leadership.
Speaking to brila.net’s Pius Idoko shortly after the Technical Adviser Rohr announced the list, Chukwu warned that despite their resurgence, Nigeria should not take it low with them.
