BY

MARIAH OLATUNJI

 

The Coach of Super Sand Eagles, Ejoor Adamu has reiterated that they will not underrate Egypt when they clash on Tuesday  December 13, in the Africa Beach Soccer Cup of  Nations, Victoria Island, Lagos

 

Ejoor who spoke with www.sportstalkafrica.com  from their training ground in Badagry on Friday December 9 said they will go into the game like wounded Lions.

 

“You know in every competition, everybody wants to win the first game and that gives you confidence going into the second match, Egypt has never beating us in any competition,  since the creation of this tournament so being our home we have more confidence, more support. We should not take our head to head advantage over them for granted, we shouldn’t rely over it, and we should work very hard”.

 

He also revealed that Nigeria Football Federation is living up to expectations unlike before when the athletes would be abandoned in camp.

 

“They realise that they are the host, they are giving us all the necessary thing, by the grace of God they have done their own part, we must do our own part too.

 

The Super Sand Eagles manager further declared their readiness to keep the cup in Nigeria.

 

“we want to host and win, we normally go out to bring the cup, but by the grace of God we want to win, we have trained, we are fit physically and mentally, so there is no distraction so we are ready for the battle, starting with Egypt”

 

Ghana vs. Cote d’Ivoire will open the tournament at the Eko Atlantic on   Tuesday evening, 6:45pm follow by Nigeria vs Egypt at 8pm
