Egypt Coach Brands Eagles Easy Foes

By Tarek Talaat:

Egyptian senior team assistant coach, Usama Nabeh, has said Nigeria are the most easy opponents in their 2017 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying group.

The Pharaohs have been drawn in Group G in 2017 Afcon qualifiers, and they will start their quest to qualify for Africa’s biggest football tournament against Tanzania on June 14.

“From my opinion, Nigeria is the easiest side in our group. We know them like our hands and we are an open book for them; that will make our mission easy and the same for them,” Nabeh said.

“When you talk about sides like Tanzania and Chad you talk of lack of information about them, and you should worry of the anonymous. We are working hard now to gather information about Chad and Tanzania.”

Egypt head coach, Hector Cuper, have drawn up the plan for the first match as they will hold camping sessions in April and in May with friendly match.

The Egyptian FA has also sealed friendly matches before their first Afcon qualifying match against Tanzania in June.
