Coach Gavin Jeanne has revealed that he did monitor the Super Eagles during the 2018 World Cup, but noted that the Pirates are a different side entirely.
Saturday’s tie at the Stade Linité (Roche Caïman (Mahé) which corresponds to the second round of matches in Group E is one both teams cannot afford to lose.
Nigeria suffered a 2-0 defeat at the hands of South Africa and Seychelles thrashed 5-1 by Libya on matchday one.
”We try to improve as much as possible. Everyone knows the Nigerian team, everyone from Africa, everyone in the world, we know them like we know them,” Gavin Jeanne stated.
”I watched every possible game of the World Cup, I watched them also but this is not the World Cup, it is different. It’s Seychelles.
”We are not Argentina, we are not Iceland so it’s a completely different game.”
Seychelles will face the Super Eagles on Saturday 8th September in a 2019 AFCON qualifier.
