“We followed Egypt’s game against Chad on Sunday but we are not under any pressure. It was a good game for them because they won 5-1 but we don’t have to think about Egypt but concentrate on ourselves. We have the quality and we believe in our coaches. Hopefully, we can do it and make our country proud,” Ahmed Musa said at a media parley.

The three time African Champions, Nigeria will face Group G leader, Egypt who have won the AFCON seven times. The Pharaohs are ahead of Nigeria having won their first two games in the qualifiers; a three nil win over Tanzania and a 1-5 win over Chad while Nigeria started with a 2-0 win over Chad and shared the spoils with Tanzania.
