Super Eagles coach Samson Siasia has admitted it would be a big challenge against Egypt in AFCON 2017 qualifiers this month, but he is confident that with hard work Nigeria could come out on top.
“The job of handling the Super Eagles is not too tasking, but rather it is a big challenge. It is not like a mountain we cannot climb, but it is a very tough one,” said Siasia, who is getting a second chance with his country’s full international team after Sunday Oliseh threw in the towel last week.
“I am not feeling any pressure. All we want to do is to make sure that we do well in the next coming games, that it is.”
The coach also confirmed he met with the technical director of the Nigeria Football Federation today in Abuja and he will also meet with the NFF technical committee on Thursday after which the squad list for the matches against Egypt will be announced.
“We actually discussed with the technical director Shuaibu Amodu to try to put the list of the invited players together. So, after the meeting of the technical committee on Thursday, the list would be released,” he further disclosed.
