Augustine Eguavoen the Super Eagles Technical Adviser has said that the Nigerian players and coaching crew are not under pressure in their return match against the Black Stars in the 2022 FIFA World Cup playoffs on Tuesday.
Eguavoen told newsmen on Monday in Abuja that he was rather motivated to achieve success knowing all Nigerians collectively want Super Eagles to be in Qatar for the World Cup.
He said,
“Our expectations as Nigeria are high, that is something I know all too well. But I am not under pressure because all of us have a responsibility regarding this match.
“And that is why I will urge all football lovers, fans, supporters clubs to come out in their numbers to support the Super Eagles on Tuesday.
“At the end of the day, everyone will be happy. We should all keep the support high, and we pray that at the end of the day everybody will be happy,”
Nigeria will take on Ghana at the Moshood Abiola National Stadium in Abuja in a winner-take-all match.” We are good to go. As for Innocent Bonke and Samuel Chukwueze, we will know where we are by late this (Friday) evening. But, as for the rest, all are in prime condition, He assured.
“The boys are all ready, knowing what is at stake and knowing that it is all or nothing for us at this stage,” he said.
Eguavoen said he was going to ensure that the team will take their goalscoring chances as they come their way, better than they did in Kumasi on Friday.
“The focus now is to score goals, because the opportunity is always rare. You take them when you have them,” he said.
“It is not going to be about me but all about the team, and we will give whatever it takes. We will give everything on Tuesday,” he said.
“We all know what they will come here with, and we are ready to take the match,” he added.
FREEDOM SQUARE TV reports that the return match on Tuesday at the Moshood Abiola National Stadium will get underway by 6 p.m with the winners over two legs to advance to the 2022 FIFA World Cup finals.
