Erstwhile Super Eagles head coach, Christain Chukwu believes the team’s 2-0 win against Niger Republic in a friendly encounter on Wednesday will serve as a morale booster ahead of their next African Cup of Nations qualifier against Egypt, Completesportsnigeria.com reports.
The former African champions were far from convincing in their first game under Sunday Oliseh against Tanzania last Saturday, escaping with a point despite the hosts dominating for most part of the game.
After watching the Eagles beat the Mena courtesy of strikes by Ahmed Musa and Moses Simon, Chukwu told Completesportsnigeria that the win has put the team in good stead ahead of their next game against Egypt.
“It was disappointing to see the Super Eagles laboured so hard without making any meaningful impact against Tanzania last weekend,” Chukwu told completesportsnigeria.com.
“But I believe this win against Niger is good for the morale of the team.
“They face a massive task against Egypt in their next qualifying game and need to go into that game in confident mood.”
