Taiwo Awoniyi has stated why Tuesday’s international friendly against the Desert Foxes is very important to the Super Eagles.
Awoniyi was in action for the Super Eagles when they played a 2-2 draw against Algeria B team in Constantine on Friday.
Alex Iwobi and Cyriel Dessers were on target for the Super Eagles who will now engage the main team of the two-time AFCON winners.
And reflecting on Friday’s draw, his role as a striker and Tuesday’s tie, Awoniyi said on NFF TV:”It was a good game unfortunately we didn’t win but it’s a game that gets us going and understand each other.
“Every striker want to score a goal because your job is to score goals and help your teammates.
“I think it will be a good game for both countries. Algeria is a country with a lot of quality players but for us it is a game which will make us know each other more and keep us focus for the next challenge.”
The Super Eagles will be targeting a first win against Algeria since 2016 having lost their last three encounters against the North Africans.Copyright © 2021 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
