Eguavoen Satisfied With Eagles’ Response, Assures Team Is Ready For Ghana Clashes

Ahead of Friday’s Ghana-Nigeria 2022 World Cup playoffs first leg match in Kumasi, Super Eagles coach, Augustine Eguavoen, has expressed satisfaction with the players’ response in camp and training session, and assures that the team is ready to go and do the nation proud, Completesports.com reports.

Eguavoen while speaking after the Super Eagles’ first training session in Abuja on Tuesday ahead of their Kumasi trip, says that the injury concerns in the squad have been adequately taken care of. He explains that Maduka Okoye who fell ill might still join the team, while Innocent Bonke has replaced injured Wilfred Ndidi.

“I am very satisfied, you can see that the boys are ready to go. The good thing is that they are in season, they are in form and their confidence is very high. No injury worries and I am very satisfied with what we saw in our first training session, one hour, 15 minutes,” Eguavoen said.

“Hopefully, we’ll have two more training sessions before the game, anything more than that will be suicidal. It is more of tactical talks than physicality now. We are ready to go,” Eguavoen concluded.

The Super Eagles will host the Black Stars in the reverse fixture at the Moshood Abiola National Stadium Abuja on Tuesday, March 29 2022. The winner over the two legs will represent Africa, alongside four other qualified nations, at Qatar 2022 FIFA World Cup.
