Eguavoen: No Complacency Against Guinea-Bissau

Super Eagles interim head coach Austine Eguavoen says the team will approach Wednesday’s (today) Group D clash against Guinea-Bissau with a serious mindset, reports Completesports.com.

The West Africans have nothing to play for having secure a place in the second round following victories in their opening two games against Egypt and Sudan.

“Just as I told the boys after the match against Egypt, we are yet to win anything here except points.”

“Guinea Bissau need the three points because they have only one so far, and we must be prepared for a massive fight.

“If we let down our guard, we could be punished, and that would not be good for the team’s psychology. We will go for the three points.”

The encounter will take place at the Roumde Adija Stadium, Garoua.

    This a right philosophy which coach Eguavoen is thinking for leading Super Eagles; winning mentality for a coach and his players means they intend to go forward to win any tournament or this tournament, so a comeplacency will kill the team psycholoy to be a champion, a champion of any tournament has been serious on any match , win any match any team strong or weak team.

    Our prayers are with you and your team to continue to transform the SE and as domestic coaches, you guys should own it, and take us to the World cup. However, and as you have said, coach, no complacency.

    This is the winning mentality that Rohr doesn’t have , if it is Rohr , his response will be ” you know that my team is very young, we don’t have Osimenh and Ighalo which will make the match difficult for us and we don’t have stars in Super Eagles , most of my players don’t play in big teams , that the minnows have eliminated big teams in this tournament and therefore we will take it easy and see how it goes !!….a defeatist mentality!

      You’re the one always crying that people are still talking about yet Rohr never leave your mouth. Didn’t Eguavoen himself said he missed Osimhen and Ighalo?? Abeg free Rohr he has done his part by creating a team we’re enjoying watching now. Let’s face our issues and stop blaming others for our problems.

    Pls don’t underestimate GB, those boys are coming to die in the field today. Attack them from the wings, don’t give them any room to operate, this GB team can be dangerous if given any chance. Fly like the eagles, up super Eagles.

    very good let win them with a very good margin. No sentiment ! .let not repeat the mistake of Rohr when we played Madagascar in last African nation cup and losing 2 goals to nothing

     
  • Super Eagle remains focus and have a mindset of winning every match for your target is the AFCON trophy.The God of soccer will grant you victories. Up!up!!up!!! Super Eagle.

     
  • Probable lineup: UZOHO, EBUEHI, EKONG, SEMI, COLLINS, NDIDI, NWAKALI, IWOBI, CHIDERA, IHEANACHO, OLAYINKA

    In another thread, GB captain had said that the SE, having already qualified, might take things easy with them. F-F-Foul. The squad comprising mainly the bench, will take the laws into their own hands, fighting hard to break into the first team. We expect a vigorous colourful game.

    Good luck the SE!

      Please still play a very strong lineup.we need the three points.This is not a practice match.moreover everyone must not play check out @ cameroon

        That is why we are not answering the same name. Moreover, why will likes of Ejuke, Iwobi, Musa, Onyekuru, collins will not be able to play against GB, this are the guys that are contesting for 11 eleven and some of them,will be representing us in world cup if we eventually qualify.

    We have to play today like it’s a cup final.
    Attack hard, defend vigilantly.
    Focus + intensity + determination = 3 points.
