We cannot afford to fail against Togo, Imama warns CHAN Eagles
The Sparrow Hawks beat the Home-based Eagles 4-1 when they met in Lome in the first leg. The decisive leg will hold at the Agege Stadium, Lagos on Saturday.
The Nigerians have been working on their strategy at the FIFA Goal Project, Abuja since returning from their expedition at the WAFU/FOX Cup of Nations in Senegal last week.
Speaking ahead of the return leg, Amapakabo acknowledged that the task at hand is difficult, adding, however, said his wards were equal to the task.
“We have a big job at hand, and I have been drumming it into the ears of the players that we cannot afford to fail. The Togolese won 4-1 on their home ground; nothing says we cannot do better on our own home ground.
“We have to be focused and determined. We must create chances and put them away because we cannot afford not to be at the African Nations Championship,” said told thenff.com.
The winner over two legs between Nigeria and Togo will book a slot at the Sixth African Nations Championship finals scheduled for Cameroon in June 2020.
According to the NFF, the Togolese delegation is expected in Lagos today aboard an ASKY Airline flight.
