CHAN 2018: Super Eagles Coach To Make Changes Against E/Guinea
Coach of the home based Super Eagles team, Salisu Yusuf has confirmed that he would be trying out some new legs as Nigeria go head-on against Equatorial Guinea on Tuesday night.
The coach has however ruled out wholesale changes as he admits that the final group game cannot be treated with kids' gloves.
"We select our line-up based on players form, attitude and their mentality.
"We might make one or two changes but we won’t overhaul the starting eleven we saw in the previous two games" Salisu told journalists in Agadir, Morocco.
The Super Eagles coach also revealed that he would be happy to have his team finish top of their group in the ongoing African Nations Championship in Morocco.
Nigeria with four points from two games are presently tied with Rwanda at the top.
The Eagles have to record a big win against Equatorial Guinea while they hope the Amavubis don't get as many goals against Libya.
“The focus is to win the game and finish up as group leader." Salisu stated even though he also admitted that it easier said than done.
"It will be a tough game, the desired result will not come easy. They (Equatorial Guinea) are playing for pride and such opposition are always difficult to beat." The Super Eagles coach added.
Congo or Angola are the likely opponents for Nigeria once they secure passage into the quarterfinals.
