By Adeboye Amosu: Morocco defender Nayef Aguerd is banking on the support of the home fans to beat Nigeria in Sunday’s final of the African Nations Championship (CHAN), Completesportsnigeria.com reports.
The hosts have ridden on the support of their fans to make it to the final of the competition even though they have impressed with some fantastic displays.
“Personally it will be a special game and I have faced a Nigerian club (Rivers United) before so we will be ready because we want to win,” the Fath Union Sport player said during the pre-match conference.
“It is clearly a different game and when you see in Africa, Morocco has the best junior team. For us we’re ready to retain the trophy here, we have experienced players who can help us.
“The fans will give us more support which is not a pressure but a motivation for us. We’re a group not only the 11 players on the pitch but we play as a team.”
