Echiejile: Super Eagles Ready For Corsica Test
Super Eagles and AS Monaco wing- back Elderson Echiejile says the Super Eagles are fully ready to face the Corsica Senior National Team on Fridayat the Stade Francois Coty, Ajaccio.
Echiejile also gave an assurance that he and his teammates will not underrate the Corsica Senior National Team despite their lower football pedigree compared to Nigeria’s.
The Super Eagles play the tiny island of Corsica in a warm up game ahead of the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against South Africa's Bafana Bafana on the 10th of June, and despite Corsica's non- affiliation with either UEFA or FIFA, Echiejile says they expect some kind of challenge from the team.
"I know a bit about them, when I was here in France. Most of their players play in the Ligue One so I expect a tough challenge from them. We cannot afford to, and will not underrate them," Elderson told thenff.com
Kick off time is 8pm (CAT).
