Chippa United goalkeeper Daniel Akpeyi is confident the Super Eagles will upstage the Pharaohs of Egypt when both teams clash later this month in a crucial 2017 AFCON qualifier in Kaduna.

The former Warri Wolves shot -stopper who is delighted to be back in the squad after being overlooked by erstwhile coach Sunday Oliseh, said the players invited for the game are capable of bagging six points from both ties.

"It's good to be back in the squad after almost a year out," Akpeyi told Completesportsnigeria.com.

"The game against Egypt is an important one to us and we must win, firstly at home, to stand a chance going into the reverse tie in Alexandria.

"They (Egypt) have good outfield players, but I'm confident of the players invited by coach Siasia to get the job done for us." 

 

Nigeria on four points after two games currently trail Egypt, who have maximum 6 points from two games in Group G.
