Ex international, Andrew Aikhomogbe ha revealed that the Super Eagles would overcome the threat been posed by the Taifas Stars of Tanzania ahead of the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier.
Nigeria sits second behind the Pharaoh of Egypt on the same points but with goal diference separating both teams. The Super Eagles defeated La Sao of Chad 2-0 in Kaduna while Egypt walloped Tanzania 3-0 in the opening qualifying matches played in June.
Knowing fully that the top team from each group would qualify automatically for the bi-annual tournament, Aikhomogbe revealed to Daily Independent Correspondent that the team must beat Taifas Stars silly in Dar es Salaam on Saturday September 5.
“I personally believe the team has what it takes to qualify for the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations in Gabon. However, it will be too bad if the players or technical crew headed by coach Sunday Oliseh decide to underestimate Tanzania. They may not be in the same rank with the Super Eagles but then, they play as a team.
“Oliseh must ensure he gets a good result in Dar es Salaam to really prove to Nigerians that he’s capable of handling the team. Yes, he can do it but he must have to take care of his own part to avoid any element of upset. I don’t see Tanzania stopping the Super Eagles from qualifying for the Africa Cup of Nations in Gabon.
