Shehu Flaunts AFCON 2019 Ticket Feat, Targets Win Vs Pharaohs

Bursaspor’s right back Abdullahi Shehu is looking forward to Tuesday’s international friendly against the Pharaohs of Egypt after helping the Super Eagles qualify for the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations, reports Completesports.com.

Nigeria beat Seychelles 3-1 in their final Group E match in Asaba with Odion Ighalo, Henry Onyekuru and Moses Simon getting the goals for the Super Eagles.

The Super Eagles return to the Africa Cup of Nations after missing out on the last two editions.

“Top of the group √√√. AFCON ticket √√√. We are flying to Egypt together with you. Seychelles done! On to the next one,” Shehu tweeted.

Shehu made four appearances for the Super Eagles during the AFCON qualifiers.

Meanwhile the Pharaohs of Egypt are expected to arrive Asaba on Monday ahead of the Tuesday’s friendly match at the Stephen Keshi Stadium Asaba.

    I am excited at the eagles’ feat.I believe we all are,especially after missing out in the previous two AFCON editions. Our desire, after congratulating them as the first qualifiers, with clean slate, is that they win the cup, & prove afterwards that their victory is not a fluke.Congrats,more power to your elbows.

      What clean slate are you talking about? Better go back to class one

      • Chima correct him pls dont insult anybody pls chima.

      • Chima E Samuels 5 years ago

        I’m not insulting i just could hardly understand his comments and the blind praises of clean slate was really annoying it tells you that most people commenting here should not comment if they don’t know anything, they should just make do with buying of complete sports instead of coming online to make dramas like Drey and co. Because previously I made a point of give these U23 guys time and Dey might fall the so called SE and he came here jubilant after they had lost prior to just a maiden meeting with the coach after just a warm up not even a rest after flight or a day training was observed so how do you expect them to win. My point of give this guys time and they will beat SE was disregarded all that was taken was the beat. So right now sending of Uzoho or co is not the solution because Osimhen is not even more profilic than Awoniyi nor Okereke all that the team needs was time to blend and not this funny options of mercenaries they are sending as saviors!

    Nigeria still don’t have a reliable goal keeper. Rohr call Osagie from the Swiss league, he is more comfortable, after watching the England match, you don’t expect a goal keeper making silly mistakes, Uzoho should know he has been to the World Cup, and stop making flimsy mistakes, Peter Rufia, Alloy Agu, Andrew Akiomogbe never made those flimsy mistakes, we need a goal keeper we can be rest assured with. Daniel Akpeyi for me has no future with the super eagles, we need future eagles now that will represent us with experience in next mudial. If Rohr keeps bringing Akpeyi hmmmm I don’t know if he’s trying to kill our goal keeping department. I have told you guys Osagie and Alampasu should start marshalling our post or reserve and that can give Uzoho confidence. My opinion.

    • Chima E Samuels 5 years ago

      Alampasu is a GEM that is on the wait. Rohr is like mou who after winning one match will start over acting forgetting that before he became a coach everything he has achieved has been achieved and surpassed by our local coaches. So he should stop deceiving himself because we know Nigeria is sold to Politics and our offices and field with incompetent chairs

    @TheSuperEagles lacks the following and a good coach after one year should have rectified this problems with the talents abound. The following areas need help 1. Gk Uzoho is not bad but should not be a number one of the SE or any serious country he should rather be a back up keeper. 2. We are yet to get a reliable attacking or defensive Right back who posses a complete package like Wan Bissaka or Carvajal. 3. Whoever is playing as a 9 must be reminded he is the best of over 150million soccer loving country so he must posses that Suarez like instinct to prove he’s worth it rather than blowing chances after chance and scoring penalties or against weak teams. 4 Tactical brains required Friendly matches or dead rubber match against fishermen team like Seychelles should be used to test new players e.g Semi Ajayi in place Of Already recognized no1 Chief DM Ndidi and see if he will replicate club form or give the new boy Onuachu a complete 90mins to see what he can do. Finally Coach Rohr should resign if he is politically manipulated because for a coaches wish of a good playing stadium to be disregarded means he doesn’t have the full power required to operate. I am not bitter in my above submission I only speak as a soccer loving Nigerian as I will still Kudos to the coach on some areas of positive E.g introduction of Collins on LB and the duo of Ekong and Balogun

  • Guy since you know better and have all these idea mentioned aboved why don’t you apply for the SE job and see how you will fare. hmmmm radarada osi.

    • Chima E Samuels 5 years ago

      Your father only bastards like you feel bitter about life and never wants good of anything. Dumbass
