Technical adviser Austin Eguavoen says the Super Eagles are in high spirit and ready for the important second leg against Ghana on Tuesday.
Speaking to NFF TV ahead of the reverse fixture in Abuja, Eguavoen said the Eagles must take the game to the Ghanaians.
“The team is in high spirit we are more than half way through I had a word with them and praise them because they were resilient,” Eguavoen said on NFF TV. “They worked hard in such an atmosphere so I think it was a fair result.
“We have to take the game to Ghana. We tried to take it to them on Friday but they were tough at the back especially the defence led by Amartey, he was good”.
Eguavoen stressed further that, the players will work hard to correct some of their mistakes.
“But we had two, three clear cut chances we should have buried but we were not just calm enough in the box. But we will try to work on how we will try to give those finals balls to our attackers to have easy passage to goal.”
The Super Eagles held Ghana’s Black Stars to a goalless draw in Kumasi and will be aiming to wrap up the tie in front of home crowd in Abuja on Tuesday.
