AFCON 2017: ‘Super Eagles will qualify ahead of Egypt’

19 February 2016, 12:23Israel Ojoko

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 John Mastoroudes.

Nigeria defeated Swaziland 2-0 at home in their last AFCON qualifying game.
