AFCON: Why Nigeria won't under-rate Guinea Bissau - Eguavoen

17 January 2022Head Coach Augustine Owen Eguavoen says his already-qualified Super Eagles have no reason to look down on their opponents or approach the game in a carefree manner when they take to the pitch of Stade Roumdé Adjia in Garoua against the Wild Dogs of Guinea Bissau on Wednesday.

Nigeria have eased into the Round of 16 as group leaders, with a match to spare, courtesy of the wins over Egypt and Sudan in their two matches and the combination of other results, notably Egypt’s defeat of Guinea Bissau on Saturday.Yet, Eguavoen says his team will deduct nothing from their consolidated one-match-at-a-time and win-all strategy adopted for the 33rd Africa Cup of Nations, even as there is no serious pressure going into that final group phase encounter.

Published 17 January 2022 Head Coach Augustine Owen Eguavoen says his already-qualified Super Eagles have no reason to look down on their opponents or approach the game in a carefree manner when they take to the pitch of Stade Roumdé Adjia in Garoua against the Wild Dogs of Guinea Bissau on Wednesday.because the Nzalang Nacional defended with a lot of desire and determination.the ongoing 2021 Africa Cup of Nations, AFCON, in Cameroon.Published 16 January 2022 Mohamed Salah got back among the goals for Egypt on Saturday as his second-half strike handed the record seven-time African champions a crucial 1-0 win over Guinea-Bissau in Garoua that was not without controversy.

Nigeria have eased into the Round of 16 as group leaders, with a match to spare, courtesy of the wins over Egypt and Sudan in their two matches and the combination of other results, notably Egypt’s defeat of Guinea Bissau on Saturday. Yet, Eguavoen says his team will deduct nothing from their consolidated one-match-at-a-time and win-all strategy adopted for the 33rd Africa Cup of Nations, even as there is no serious pressure going into that final group phase encounter. Esteban Fernandez scored the only goal of the match in the second half to give Equatorial Guinea a memorable 1-0 win over Algeria in Douala. “It is important for us to sustain the winning mentality while we keep our heads on our shoulders. Osimhen, on the other hand, was replaced in Nigeria’s squad for the 2021 AFCON by Slavia Prague’s Peter Olayinka after failing to recover in time from a facial injury. Just as I told the boys after the match against Egypt, we are yet to win anything here except points. Reacting after the game, Belmadi was quoted by CAF Online as saying: “It’s not the expected result and yet we did everything, we got several chances but the ball did not go in. Guinea Bissau need the three points because they have only one so far and we must be prepared for a massive fight. He said, “We have a new coach and new generation.

“If we let down our guard, we could be punished, and that would not be good for the team’s psychology. “Football is not always about rational reasons but let’s be sure, we will fight to stay in this competition. “They [Ighalo and Osimhen] are two different players who can actually score two goals out of three chances. We will go for the three points.” Guinea Bissau drew 0-0 with Sudan in their first match, losing a penalty awarded to them late in the gane, and then fell to a Mohamed Salah goal in a match they gave their all and even felt they should have been awarded an equalizer that was cancelled late in the encounter. “Regarding the opponent, Equatorial Guinea, they defended with a lot of desire, determination and we couldn’t find the fault, it’s a situation of failure. “With a little more luck, they could have beaten Sudan and could have drawn with Egypt. Awoniyi has been scoring goals in the German league and Sadiq as well. That is the kind of opposition we face on Wednesday. They will face Ivory Coast in their last Group game on Thursday.” Salah, who had not scored in any of his previous six appearances for Egypt this season, struck the post with just 84 seconds played.

Nobody will tell me they’re pushovers,” added Eguavoen. Eguavoen, 56, is the only man to have coached Nigeria to win all three matches in the group phase of the AFCON since the country started participating at this level since 1963. “We have given Aribo the chance to move up the field and he has done that very well. He was head coach when the Eagles defeated Ghana 1-0, Zimbabwe 2-0 and Senegal 2-1 at the Al Masry Stadium, Port Said to sweep the stakes at the 2006 finals. Read Also .
