Super Eagle will face the Desert Warrior today for the 2018 FIFA world cup qualifying series ,as tension grew stronger of which team is going to secure three point in Uyo. The game wont be an easy ride for the Super Eagle as the Desert warriors will come battle-ready for the cracker.
Algeria team will be lead by Georges Leekens attack warriors such as Islam Slimani, Yacine Brahimi, Nabil Bentaleb and Leicester city wonder boy Riyad Mahrez.
Three things Nigeria should consider if they’re to survive the battle in Uyo
They should make use of the home advantage,the crowd in Uyo will play a vital part on Super Eagle performances,the teams should be clamored and supported with total passion.
>Take their chances
No chances should be wasted, Algeria have keep clean sheets of their last three games this was as a result of them taking their chances when they have it,Super Eagle needs no fortune-tellers to tell them if their chances are wasted they’ll pay for it.
Super Eagle should create every available chance today and make sure those opportunities are converted.
>Avoid defensive errors
There’s no way any team wont give in for silly errors,if pressure is too much on the defence,Super Eagle should avoid another Kenneth Omeruo’s typical blunder against the Chipolopo in their last game. Omeruo inexplicably failed to clear out a cross which makes Collins Mbesuma fired a nice shot past Carl Ikeme.
Today the Eagles will be facing lethal striker who ply their trade in top division clubs in Europe and any silly defensive errors will see the Super Eagle pay grievously,the likes of Mahrez ,Slimani should be given no room for comfort.
