Salisu, Ezenwa rally Eagles against Libya

Super Eagles assistant coach Salisu Yusuf  says the team need  to raise  their  level after  their disappointing  performance in their   Morocco 2018  African Nations Championship opening game  against Rwanda  at Stade Ibn Batouta in  Tangier on Monday.

The South Africa 2014 bronze medallists face Group C leaders Libya  in their second game of the tournament exclusively for players plying their trade in their domestic league on Friday,  and  under-pressure Salisu says the Eagles must win the encounter  to “regain our confidence”.

And the  captain of the team Ikechukwu Ezenwa echoed his manager’s words, saying they should aim for victory against the 2014 CHAN champions, who humiliated Equatorial Guinea 3-0 in their first game.

In a pre-match interview on Thursday, Salisu restated that bad luck robbed  Nigeria of victory against Rwanda.

He told his charges  to convert their scoring chances  against the North Africans today.

“We played well in that game (against Rwanda)  but luck was not on our side,” the former Kano Pillars manager, who is in charge of the CHAN assignment, told Cafonline.
