With some hours remaining before the Super Eagles do battle with their Seychelles counterparts, goalkeeper trainer of the former African champions Alloy Agu is confident ahead of the clash with the minnows.
The Eagles will tackle the Pirates in a 2019 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) qualifier at the Stade Linite on Saturday.
”It will be a great game. We have a team that is rearing to go. It will be tough but we are capable of doing a good job,” Alloy Agu told Futbalgalore.com.
“We won’t take them for granted. Football isn’t an easy game, so no more minnow in the game. We want to win on Saturday.
The match referee is Omweno Devis from Kenya, to be assisted by compatriot Cheruiyot Gilbert (assistant referee 1) and Ugandans Isorlko Mark (assistant referee 2) and Muhabi Alli (reserve referee).
