As crucial 2017 Nations Cup qualifier against the Pharaohs of Egypt draw nearer, sports administrator Aminu Kurfi Balele has posited that Nigeria’s Super Eagles would book their place in Gabon as they seek convincing win en route to the continent’s most prestigious soccer show.
Balele, a special Adviser to Katsina state Governor told Nigerian Pilot Sports that it won’t take much time before the country’s National senior team rediscover their redeem under new coach Samson Siasia.
The Kastina United chairman whose team held home-based Super Eagles wondered why any meaningful Nigerian would prefer a foreign handler at a time when Siasia-led consortium of coaches have swung into action to ensure an AFCON ticket.
According to him; “the most interesting aspect of the team is that I’m interested in their playing pattern. When this team jells together, no other team in Africa will beat Super Eagles. All departments of the team is coming up under Siasia.
“All the team needs now is support from all quarters. Now we have two crucial matches at hand and some People are clamouring for foreign coaches. It’s a distraction. If you are talking about Bonfere Jo coming to manage Super Eagles, that’s not possible now. For the past five years, Bonfere has not managed any team.
“If we need a foreign, let’s go and get Mounrinho and not talking about tired coaches which some People will use to defraud Nigerians that will not happen again under this change government.”
Ahead of Egypt’s clash, the Super Eagles have began preparation with local players in camp. Their oversea-based counterparts will join the team as from next Sunday before they head to Kaduna, venue of first leg tie between Nigeria and Egypt.
Both sides will be off to Alexandria, Egypt for their return leg encounter as from March 26 ahead of march 29 duel.
