and by the grace of God Eagles will
qualify. The coaches must have
observed and what happened. I am
not a technical man. They are on
ground to know the areas the team
need to work on before the next
game, but I can assure you that the
team will qualify from the group.’’

start against the coach of the Super
Eagles home-based team, Salisu

entirely poor result especially
going by the way the home lads
dominated the proceedings
and were only ‘unlucky’ not to
register any goal. “Generally, it is
not a setback because we created
chances and we couldn’t score but
if we keep creating chances and
hopefully take them, we can beat
any team in this tournament.”

With as much as 24 shots from
the Super Eagles and just four from
Rwanda, the ball just chose not to
go into the net in Monday night’s
The Super Eagles hit the
woodwork thrice as they
dominated play from start to finish
but they would have themselves to
blame for not making the best use
of the chances that came their way.

table-toppers, Libya while the
stubborn Rwanda team will face
