He said his players had prepared for the encounter because Nigeria was blessed with talented players and that a victory for his side would be a big boost.

“My boys are fit enough to play the Super Eagles. I believe the game will be very tough.

“Although Nigeria is out of the Nations Cup tournament and Tanzania is also out of the tournament, the match is going to be tough because everybody want to win,” he said.
