Eguavoen: Eagles Must Beat S/Africa

Eguavoen: Eagles Must Beat S/Africa

–Says last match very important to Eagles qualification

Following Nigeria’s 2-0 victory over the Red Devils of Congo, former Super Eagles coach Austin Eguavoen has charged the senior national team to continue to work hard until they finally get the 2015 African Cup of Nations ticket as he commended the efforts of the players in ensuring they secured victory in the away match.

Goals from Villarreal of Spain striker Ike Uche and Aron Samuel helped the Super Eagles to return home with the maximum points, there returning the team on track for the African showpiece.

And Eguavoen believes that the job is not yet completed until Nigeria has finally qualified for the Nations Cup.

“It is a good effort and we must commend the players for the result, it was not easy going away to win but these boys did it and I think we should praise them for that but having said that, I still believe that the job is not yet completed yet, they still need to work harder because the last match will be tough,” says Eguavoen.

“With the way things are now, it is sure that Nigeria will be in Equatorial Guinea but they should not underrate South Africa because that is the match that will decide the fate of the team.

The Super Eagles, who returned to Nigeria in the early hours of Sunday after the away win, will take on the Bafana Bafana of South Africa on Wednesday in the last game of the 2015 African Cup of Nations qualifiers.
