Musa: There is no reason to panic or fear Egypt
Super Eagles captain Ahmed Musa has stated that they don’t have any reasons to be afraid of Egypt, adding that the Egyptians are the ones who should be afraid.
“I am calling on Nigerians and football fans to support us and keep praying for us as we will make the nation proud with victories over Egypt,” Ahmed Musa told AfricanFootball.com
”We are not afraid of Egypt. Why should we?
”We have top quality players who will do Nigeria and Nigerians proud in both games. There is no reason to panic or fear Egypt, instead they should be the ones who should be afraid of us.”
Nigeria will host the Pharaohs on March 25 in Ahmadu Bello Stadium in Kaduna, before travelling to Egypt to play in Borg El-Arab Stadium in Alexandria four days later.
Seven-time winners Egypt lead Group G with six points, two points ahead of 2nd place Nigeria, with only the group winners are guaranteed automatic qualification to the final tournament in Gabon in 2017.
