Olhanese of Portugal defender Stanley Amuzie is confident the Super Eagles can still qualify for the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations despite their 1-1 draw against Egypt in Kaduna last Friday.
The Eagles now have two points and Egypt four following Chad's withdrawal from the qualifying rounds and Samson Siasia's men must now beat the Pharoahs and Tanzania to seal a place in next year's African Nations Cup.
And Amuzie who is likely to keep his place in the team when they take on the group leaders in Tuesday's's crucial reverse fixture told Completesportsnigeria.com that all hopes are still not lost.
"We know what we need to do which is to win our remaining two games to qualify for the Nations Cup," Amuzie said.
"We were just unlucky not to have won but we will make amends."
Amuzie who made his debut in the encounter also shared his experience marking Mohammed Salah.
"What hurt me most is that didn't win not because Salah scored," he added. "Prior to the game there was much talk about him but he was relatively quiet until that moment he scored.
"We have to take our chances and I believe we won't disappoint."
The Super Eagles are expected to depart later Monday for Alexandra, Egypt for the reverse fixture of this tie.
