Prepare for big fight against Pharaohs, Amuneke tells Eagles
Super Eagles assistant coach, Emmanuel Amuneke, has sounded a note of warning to players invited to the Super Eagles camp for this month double-header 2017 African Nations Cup qualifier against the Pharaohs of Egypt to be ready to fight like wounded lions.
Amuneke also said that the players must show full level of commitment so as to earn the needed points to qualify for Gabon 2017 Afcon.
He admitted that the Egyptians team is an organized team, but added that with determination and commitment on their side, Nigeria will be able to beat them to the ticket. “The Super Eagles have more experience players as far as the game of football is concerned.” He said.
The former Zamalek of Egypt player has charged football lovers in the country not to be apprehensive ahead of the AFCON qualifier, assuring that the coaches have already started mapping out strategies to outshine the Pharaohs in Kaduna.
Amuneke who is the Flying Eagles coach, also assured that the handlers would select the best players to make a positive impact in the AFCON qualifier.
“Super Eagles need committed players who are ready to fight like wounded lions to defeat Egypt. Egypt have a good national team and football culture that need to be respected. I have played in their league before when I was with Zamalek FC. They have quality players. But this does not mean the Eagles cannot defeat Pharaohs.
“All we need do is to assemble committed and humble players ready to give their best on the field. Nigerians don ‘t need to be apprehensive ahead of the game. I am very sure we shall overcome Egypt,’’ Amuneke said.
