Super Eagles go for win against Algeria

November 10, 2017 6:58 am

The Super Eagles will face the Desert Foxes of Algeria in their last Africa Group A qualifiers at the Stade Mohamed-Hamlaoui stadium, Constantine.

Although the match is a dead rubber as Nigeria have already qualified for the World Cup, even with one more round of matches left, but the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) has declared it an important game the Eagles must win.

“It will be good to win the match so that we keep our record of qualifying for the 2018 World Cup without losing a match during the qualifiers,” said the NFF President, Amaju Pinnick.

The game will also serve as an opportunity for the technical crew to test new players who could gate crash into the final squad for the World Cup.

The Super Eagles landed in Constantine on Thursday morning and were reportedly received warmly by the Algerian fans.

Team handler, Gernot Rohr, may not have the full complement of his regular players as no fewer than six of key players including Victor Moses, Elderson Echiejile, Moses Simon, Odion Ighalo, Eddy Onazi and Mikel Agu, who featured in the last game against Zambia in Uyo, would not be in the team.
