Amokachi sure of Super Eagles victory against Tanzania

31 August 2015, 13:22

Lagos - Former Nigeria assistant coach Daniel Amokachi is confident the Super Eagles will beat the Taifa Stars of Tanzania when both teams lock-horns in a 2017 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier on Saturday.

Former African champions, Nigeria, are gunning to return to the continental competition which they missed out on last time, and already started the qualifying series on a promising note, beating Chad 2-0 in their first game.

"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 to News24.

"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.
