Nigeria vs Guine-Bissau: Eguavoen insists Nigeria will go for three points

Published:

Super Eagles interim head coach, Augustine Eguavoen has insisted that the Super Eagles will not take any chance and go all out for the three points when they face Djurtus in their final Group D match at the ongoing AFCON 2021 in Cameroon on Wednesday.

The Eagles who are three time winners of the competition sits atop the Group D with six points and have already secured qualifications into the second round, but Guinea-Bissau need a win to stand a chance of finishing as one of the best third-place teams that will progress to the next round.

Guinea-Bissau have just one point after their goalless draw against Sudan in their opening group game, before they narrowly lost to seven-time champions Egypt 1-0 in their second game on Saturday.

The Bissau-Guineans who will be gunning for an outright win against the Eagles, who may not be fielding their first XI for the game, but an assured Eguavoen says his side will not take the match lightly, insisting they will go all out to grab the maximum points.

“It is important for us to sustain the winning mentality while we keep our heads on our shoulders. Just as I told the boys after the match against Egypt, we are yet to win anything here except points.”

“Guinea Bissau need the three points because they have only one so far and we must be prepared for a massive fight,” Eguavoen said.

“If we let down our guard, we could be punished, and that would not be good for the team’s psychology. We will go for the three points.

“With a little more luck, they could have beaten Sudan and could have drawn with Egypt. That is the kind of opposition we face on Wednesday. Nobody will tell me they’re pushovers.”

Both sides have never met either in a competitive or friendly game and both will love to start the count with a win. In the other Group D game that will be played simultaneously, Egypt will need to beat Sudan to cement their second spot on the table.
