Emmanuel Amunike admits Egypt clash will be tough
Amunike affirmed that from his previous experience with Zamalek, The Egyptians will be strongly backed by their fans in Alexandria.
“From experience, Egyptians are very passionate about football and I’m not surprised the game will be played in Alexandria in order to guarantee maximum support,” Amunike told CafOnline.com
“The game on Tuesday would be different from last Friday’s (in Kaduna) where we unfortunately conceded a late goal. It’s going to be tougher. We would have to apply a lot of wisdom and cannot afford some of the mistakes we made in Kaduna. I wouldn’t subscribe to the notion that we were tactically naive against Egypt in Kaduna because that was a match we would have won with some luck,” concluded the former Zamalek player.
Egypt are set to face The Super Green Eagles on Tuesday, the 29th of March with only one victory separating them from earning the long-awaited qualification to AFCON 2017 in Gabon after missing the last three editions of the competition, this comes after the withdrawal of Chad from the qualifications of Africa’s biggest gathering.
