The Super Eagles on Monday night trained at the Taïeb M’hiri Stadium, Sfax, Tunisia ahead of Tuesday's anticipated crunch clash against the Mediterranean Knights of Libya as battle for places at next year's Africa Cup of Nations gets hotter.

A win for Nigeria on Tuesday would take the Super Eagles much closer to a place at the 2019 AFCON finals to be staged in Cameroon, and the words of leader of delegation Seyi Akinwunmi was ringing in the players’ ears as they trained.

“We have come here determined to pick the three points at stake and make the road much smoother for us towards Cameroon 2019. The players did a great job in Uyo on Saturday and all they need is step up a gear here and amass another three points.

 “We have confidence in the players that we have here, as well as the technical crew, and we believe they will do the job.”

 Nigeria lie second on the Group E table with six points, one less than leaders South Africa, ahead of Tuesday’s Matchday 4 battles. South Africa are also away, to Seychelles in Mahe Island on Tuesday.
