According to The MINIECHAT, Salisu Yusuf, coach of the Super Eagles B, is optimistic that his team would overcome a 2-0 first-leg deficit against Ghana’s Black Galaxies and advance to the 2023 African Nations Championship, which will be held in Algeria the following year.
The Black Galaxies defeated the Nigerians 2-0 in Cape Coast during the first leg of their final qualifiers thanks to goals from Daniel Barnie and Seidu Suraj in the second half.
Prior to the crucial second leg match in Abuja on Saturday, Salisu’s team is presently ramping up their preparations.
After his team’s Wednesday practise, Yusuf stated, “We have the ability to turn things around this weekend.
We know where they excel as a team, so we’ll look for ways to limit their excellence and investigate their flaws.
“Football is a 90-minute game, therefore we must try to reverse the two goals we gave up. We must put in even more effort than we did over the little period of time we had to be ready for this game. In Abuja, we must change the situation.
The Eagles, according to Ghana coach Annor Walker, pose no danger to his team.
Walker said to Ghana Soccernet that “it (not qualifying) would not be conceivable since I have not seen any danger in their (Nigeria’s) assault.”
“I’ve watched how they play, and we’ll strategize for it as well. When we arrive to Nigeria, we’ll adopt a different approach to the game.”
We’re heading to Nigeria, and we’ll definitely make CHAN next year, the coach continued.
Ghana, unlike Nigeria, has not made it into the last three CHAN tournaments, which explains why they are so eager to break that curse.
