Gabriel: Okpotu And Myself Will Make Life Difficult For Moroccan Defence In CHAN 2018 Final

Gabriel: Okpotu And Myself  Will Make Life Difficult For  Moroccan Defence In CHAN 2018  Final

By Johnny Edward: Akwa United striker, Okechukwu Gabriel, says playing alongside Anthony Okpotu in the Home Eagles attack will be too much for the Moroccan defence to handle in the final of the 2018 African Nations Championship later tonight in Casablanca, Morocco, Completesportsnigeria.com reports.
Gabriel told Completesportnigeria.com prior to  the team’s lunch on Sunday that he has struck a good understanding with the Lobi Stars hitman who has been unfairly criticised.
“Okpotu is a very good striker and I’m happy playing alongside him in the attack,” Gabriel told Completesportsnigeria.com.
“His work rate for the team has been tremendous and he has scored twice as well.

“We both have the qualities to wreck their (Moroccan) defence and we’ve been talking about it as well. We just want to make Nigerians proud by winning the match.”
Both Okpotu and Gabriel are expected to lead the Nigeri’s attack in tonight’s final against Morocco barring any last minute tactical change.

    I pray God helps Anthony Okpotu in today’s final because his missing rate is higher than his scoring rate . For that of Gabriel Okechukwu he has proved to be a deadly finisher than Okpotu . I wish them luck at the end .

    The coach has done the needful by dropping Okpotu. Let’s see what he can do when he come from the bench.
