In a desperate move to ensure Nigeria get results against the Pharoahs of Egypt in next month’s Africa Cup of Nations 2017 qualifiers, Super Eagles coach Sunday Oliseh has commenced a search for his opponents’ match footage.
In an exclusive chat with Complete Sports, the former Nigeria captain said his major aim is to put Nigeria in the driver’s seat in Group G by defeating Egypt in Kaduna on March 26 and then get a decent result in the resturn leg in Egypt.
Oliseh has ordered some of his scouts to get him the tapes at all costs, pointing out that the current Egyptian team has evolved from a struggling side to a more experienced national team since Hector Cuper took over the reins.
“We have been working round the clock to get the tapes,” Oliseh said.
“I have some loyalists who have been working hard to secure those tapes for the coaching crew and I am hopeful of getting them.
“We have been working on how the team plays but getting their match footage will go a long way to bolster our preparations for the AFCON qualifier which is a must win for us by the special grace of God.”
Hector Cuper’s men lead Group G with six points from two games, and a result against Sunday Oliseh’s men in Kaduna would put them in pole position to qualify for the 2017 African football showpiece billed for Gabon, having missed out of the last three editions.
