Super Eagles striker says goals will flow against Egypt

16 March 2016, 21:48Israel Ojoko

Lagos - Super Eagles striker Aaron Samuel says getting goals would not be a problem for Nigeria when they confront the Pharaohs of Egypt in a 2017 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying match in Kaduna on March 25.

The big striker, who plays for CSKA Moscow FC in Russia’s elite division alongside Captain Ahmed Musa, has been included in the list of 21 overseas –based professionals called by Coach Samson Siasia for the double header against the Pharaohs.

“Goals will not be a problem when we take to the pitch in Kaduna. We have more and bigger stars that the Egyptians.

“There is nothing to fret about. I have heard what the Egyptians are saying, that we would not be able to score in Kaduna. That is mere wishful thinking on their part. They are trying to play a psychological game. The goals will surely flow from our boots into their net,” he said.

Samuel, who previously played in China, scored two brilliant goals for the Super Eagles in the 2015 Cup of Nations qualifying race – against Sudan in Abuja and against Congo in Pointe Noir.

“Our objective would be to be precise, to convert the chances that we create. We will win and win well.”

Nigeria host Egypt at the Ahmadu Bello Stadium, Kaduna on Friday, March 25, and both teams clash again four days later at the Borg el-Arab Stadium, Alexandria.
