Super Eagles defender, Godfrey Oboabona believes the side must be at their best against Egypt when both teams clash in the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers later this month, reports Completesportsnigeria.com.
The three- time African champions are second in Group G of the qualifiers with four points, two points behind the Pharaohs who sit at the top of the log.

"We didn't make it to the last AFCON and we know we can't afford to miss out once again.
"The games against Egypt will be very tough and we must be ready to fight hard to beat them.
