Lagos - Former technical committee member of the Nigeria
Football Federation, John Mastoroudes believes the Super Eagles will beat
Pharaohs of Egypt in their next two African Nations Cup qualifiers.
The three-time African champions did not qualify for the
2015 AFCON in Equatorial Guinea following a poor qualification campaign and
currently trail leaders, Egypt by two points in Group G.

Nigeria will play the North Africans in a back-to-back AFCON
qualifier in March 2016 with Roma’s Mohammed Salah set to lead the Pharaohs
charge, but Mastoroudes is positive of the Eagles chances and he hopes the West
Africans can come back to winning ways under coach Sunday Oliseh.
“I think the Eagles will qualify, but they must win the home
game with a big margin, fine football is biscuit, you really don’t know where
it will crack. The Egyptians are very good so the Super Eagles must do
everything right in their home game first.
“I believe and am confident the Eagles will qualify,” said
