Ogbe tasks Super Eagles on World Cup qualifier against Algeria
Veteran coach, Bernard Ogbe has warned the Super Eagles against complacency ahead of the 2018 Fifa World Cup qualifying clash against the Algerian opposite, Desert Foxes.
Eagles are due to confront the North African side in the group’s matchday 2 clash on Saturday, November 12 at the Godswill Akpabio International Stadium in Uyo, Akwa Ibom state.
Ogbe said the fact that the Algerians shared the spoils with the Cameroonians in the group’s opening clash in Blida, Algeria will make the matchday 2 matchup harder for both sides.
“Of course, the clash against Algeria in Uyo will not come cheap for the obvious reason that the North African side drew the first game against Cameroon and will come all out to win aimed at putting back on track their World Cup hope.
“That’s why we must build on the hard fought victory against Zambia in Ndola by remaining 100% focus not only against Algeria but throughout the qualification race.
“We are not yet at the celebration or relaxation time but a period to further improve and intensify on our work.
“I know the Eagles manager, Gernot Rohr must have picked some loopholes in the game against Zambia to fashion out a winning pattern in the clash against the Algerians.
“The football house, Nigeria Football Federation must come out strongly to motivate the players to deliver the goods.
“I’m optimistic for good performance as well as clean slate by the Eagles,” said the former Akwa United and Gombe United coach to supersport.com.
Nigeria are at the summit of the group on three points while Algeria and Cameroon are one point apiece and Zambia with no point after matchday 1 clashes.
