Yusuf Relishes Home Eagles’ Double Target; To Win CHAN 2018, Make Russia 2018 W/Cup Squad

Home Eagles head Coach, Salisu Yusuf, believes a good outing at the African Nations Championship in Morocco will boost the players’ chances of breaking into the main Super Eagles squad with the 2018 World Cup in Russia on the horizon, Completesportsnigeria.com (CSN) reports.

Salisu will lead his side out against Rwanda in their first game on Monday night. He urges his players to play collectively to achieve their desired results.

The CHAN 2018 tournament kicked off on Saturday with hosts Morocco defeating Mauritania 4-0.

“The players know what is at stake. We are not here just for the CHAN. Everyone is thinking of the World Cup as well,” Salisu told thenff.com.‎

“For the players, they have a massive opportunity to play their way into the A team for the big one in Russia.

“However, at every opportunity, myself and my assistants have made it clear to the boys that they must work as a team.

“If they win the tournament, the chances of several players making the team to Russia will be high.

“No man can clap with only one hand. Team work is key in this business.”
