A win against the Lions of Jediane will see Austine Eguavoen’s side secure a place in the Round of 16 with a game to spare.

Simon, who put up an exceptional performance against Egypt insisted that they go all out for a wread in against the Sudanese.


“The game against Sudan is something we just need to be careful with because now in Africa, there is no small team,” Simon said after Wednesday’s training session at the VSTS-ANNEX, Roumde Adija Stadium, Garoua.

“So, of course, we just need to go all in all. The way we took the game against Egypt is likewise the same thing that we are going to do against Sudan. We have to do our best and give 100 per cent to have three points.”

  • Nice statement from a world class winger…….Simon single handedly won the Belgium league for Gent(first league title in their history) in his first full season there and he was a joy to watch…….He would have moved immediately after because he was highly sort after in Europe even Liverpool also showed interest……..But like most Nigerian players,his agent and club where very greedy and wanted to rip it all without considering the players career progression…….He was held back for another 4 seasons at Gent and his Market value dropped…….Gent finally sold him to levante in the Laliga which for me was way below Simon’s pedigree…….An early injury and lose of form made his stay at Spain a not too impressive one…….Simon had to find a new home in Nantes of France where he settled down nicely and we are beginning to see the Moses Simon we all once knew.

  • This guy is so energetic, he runs non stop, and I thought only kante can do that lol

    I have always known that Simon is a good player, especially during his days at gent,but due to the way he was used by the failed coach who limited him and told him to defend first bf attacking,the young man in an interview recently in France,said that the difference btw his performance in club and country is that he is given all clear to attack bf defending in Nantes but for the super eagles,he is a defender
