Pinnick Banks On Iwobi, Ighalo, Mikel To Beat Egypt

By Richard Jideaka, Abuja:

President of Nigeria Football Federation, Amaju Pinnick has tipped the trio of Alex Iwobi, Odion Ighalo and Mikel Obi to lead the expected annihilation of their Egyptian counterparts in the Africa Cup of Nations qualifier in Kaduna on Friday, Completesportsnigeria.com reports.


Pinnick is particularly thrilled with the performance of Iwobi whose first EPL goal lifted Arsenal above home side Everton, winning 2-0 in the EPL game last Saturday. Pinnick boasts  that the 19 year old will be in the groove when the Eagles clash with the Pharaohs in Kaduna. 

"Our boys are in the best form for the Egypt game, and if they reproduces such form in Kaduna on Friday, goals will rain against the visitors. Already, some of the players have called to reassure us that they would show no mercy against Egypt and I believe them. We are not taking any chances against the Pharaohs," Pinnick states in chat with Completesportsnigeria.com.

"With the form of Iwobi , Mikel, Odion and other players in England and other leagues of Europe, Egypt know they are in real trouble and will not escape defeat in Kaduna. What we are praying for is that our foreign based players give the game their best and win the first leg before going for the final kill in the second leg duel," the NFF boss remarks.

Pinnick continues: "they (Egypt), might also boast of the form of Salah and Elneny, but we have better quality players whose experience will get us this much needed victory. The boys are self motivated to beating the Pharaohs and the NFF on our part will give them all the necessary support and logistics to win."

  • Mr Amaju why on earth did you take the match to Kaduna where the pitch is very bare and bad.If Siasia can't complain because of fear of being told off,we will tell you Amaju and your so called technical team that you made a big mistake taking the match to Ahmadu Bello stadium.That pitch will be an hindrance to the Super Eagles performance.Why can't we use Abuja stadium where the pitch is managable.You guys at NFF have to take the welfare of the players into consideration.Welfare isn't about money alone,the pitch they play on is equally important.

  • Exactly

  • Dis guy jst said my mind….wat happened to Abuja stadium or Godswill Akpabio stadium in Akwa ibom,The super eagles wnt play well in Kaduna,its jst a fact.

  • I don’t know why we are playing in kaduna. Kaduna is my home, but I won’t jeopardize chances of winning to sentiments. The pitch is bad, if we must play in Kaduna why not level the pitch for good traction and better ball control. Sports personalities that chose Kaduna should have done something about the pitch
