Amokachi tells Eagles to be strong

09 January 2014, 17:17Israel Ojoko

Cape Town - Assistant coach Daniel Amokachi has told players of the Super Eagles at the 2014 African Nations Championship to be strong as they seek to lift the trophy.

In Wednesday’s training, the responses of the players were near perfect to the joy of the technical crew.

“If you must do well in a tournament of this magnitude, you must be physically, mentally and tactically ready”, Amokachi said after a satisfactory training session.

As fans in South Africa and beyond continue to tip the Super Eagles for honours at the CHAN tournament which starts this Saturday in Nelson Mandela’s country, the team has said it will not be carried away but will approach each game with utmost seriousness and focus.

Amokachi said fans and pundits are entitled to their prediction for the tourney but he knows that there are no small teams at the event.

“The boss, Stephen Keshi does not believe in quick fix and we don’t either. We must work very hard if we are to take something out of this place and most importantly remain disciplined”,

The players and officials agreed with him and wished their Head Coach will come to South Africa with the Coach of the Year Award and John Mikel Obi, the coveted African Footballer of the Year Award. “That will further boost the confidence of the team we have here”, declared Team Administrator, Dayo Enebi Achor.
