* Ahead of Second Match today in Austria
Super Eagles Players have shown their preparedness to avenge their loss against Cameroon at the second match of the International Friendly game today.
The Rohr side were beaten 1 goal to nil by the Indomitables Lions of Cameroon last Friday. The two teams are billed for a second match this evening at the same Stadion Wiener Neustadt, Austria.
Assuring that the Nigerian side is ready, the skipper, Ahmed Musa, said “defeat in Tuesday’s game is not an option.
“We are not happy to have created so many chances and failed to score. We will approach the game differently on Tuesday. Cameroon is a big rival and we are not happy to have lost the game on Friday.”
In the same vein, Goalkeeper Maduka Okoye said: “We have taken some positives from the first match against Cameroon. We had a good game and it was unfortunate that they scored with just that one shot on target. However, we have shown that we are ready for the AFCON with the strength of character we showed after conceding the goal. We are ready to go for it on Tuesday.”
Super Eagles’ New-boy, Abraham Marcus, expressed his joy for joining the National team. He said: “When the coach introduced me into the game, all I had in mind was to help the team get the equalizer. I look forward to another opportunity on Tuesday.”
According to the Nigeria Football Federation, “the two teams are using both matches to look at their general shape, form and structure ahead of the 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifying matches starting in September.”
