"I'm sure the chief coach has selected the players he
needs and I'm sure we have what it takes to beat Tanzania," Amokachi said
"We need to take it easy and do what we have to do on
and off the pitch. The players must also understand why they are there and if
they run for ninety minutes and do the right things, I'm sure they'll come back
with three points.
"The most important thing is that we started on a good
note by winning against Chad and if we can get another three against Tanzania,
it will go a long way for us," he said.
When asked what Sunday Oliseh should do to get the best out
of the players, 'The Bull', as he's
fondly called, was non-committal, insisting that only the coach can determine
how to get the best from his players.
"I think that is a question the coach should answer. He
is the coach and he's the man in charge of the team so I think he knows how to
go about that," Amokachi added.For
