WAFU Cup: We Must Beat Ghana - Yusuf
The home-based Super Eagles team are in a dicey situation at the ongoing WAFU Cup of Nations and the coach of the team, Salisu Yusuf has labeled Monday's final group game against Ghana as a 'must win' tie.
Yusuf has told thenff.com he would certainly make changes in the Super Eagles’ line–up as he is desperate to avoid an early exit from the sub-regional tournament.
The Ghana/Nigeria clash will take place at the Cape Coast Stadium starting from 6pm (7pm Nigeria time) with contrasting fortunes before kick–off.
Hosts, Ghana are comfortable and already have a ticket into the semifinals with six points from their first two matches in the group phase.
It is completely different for the Eagles who have only two points, and must win to be sure of a place in the last four.
Yusuf said: “It is a must-win game; we are certainly aware of that. Definitely, we will look at making a few changes because this is one match we must show character and efficiency at the rear, and middle and the fore. Not only must we avoid defeat; we must win to make progress in the championship. That demands absolute seriousness and diligence and only the best legs will do.”
