Seychelles National team coach Gavin Jeanne insists that his side is not afraid of the Super Eagles of Nigeria ahead of the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier on Saturday.
The teams will meet for a matchday two Group E clash at Stade Linite in Victoria on September 8, with both looking to bounce back from opening defeats last year.
The Seychelles National team suffered a humiliating 5-1 loss away to Libya, while the Super Eagles were beaten 2-0 at home by South Africa.
“Yes, we are very ready and positive about our chances against Nigeria,” Jeanne told Soccernet.
“We have prepared well and I hope the players maintain their focus and stick to the plan.”
the Pirates coach added, “We have enjoyed a good build-up to the game. It’s our biggest football match in history.
“We have tested ourselves enough from our participation it the Cosafa Cup till now. I hope it goes well and we make a positive impact.”
The other Group E match this weekend will see South Africa host Libya in Durban.
