Egypt coach, Hector Cuper, says his side needs to work on their finishing skills ahead of next month’s crucial clash against Nigeria, reports Completesportsnigeria.com.
The Pharaohs who will face the Super Eagles of Nigeria in a 2017 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier double header in March beat Burkina Faso 2-0 in a friendly on Saturday.
The Argentine said after the game that his side gave a good performance in the encounter, but admitted there are still a lot of things to be corrected.
“I admit we have made some mistakes. We will need to work to solve some problems and fix these mistakes; that is why the friendly games are so important to us,” he told reporters after the game.
“We need to improve our final touch and to depend more on the wings.
“The most important thing was reaching the opponent’s penalty box and that happened, but we missed too a lot of chances.
“Generally we gave a good performance.”
