Nigeria forward Aaron Samuel believes the Green Eagles will not struggle to score goals against Egypt in the upcoming African Cup of Nations qualifier in Nigeria.

The CSKA Moscow forward was among the list of players called up by coach Siasia for the Nigeria camp before they host the Pharaohs on the 25th of March.

Samuel spoke to the Nigerian Football Federation’s (NFF) website ahead of the encounter against the group leaders, and he believes that scoring goals won’t be a problem for his country.

“We have more and bigger stars than the Egyptians. We believe that goals won’t be a problem for us when we face them in Kaduna. There’s nothing to worry about,” the 21-year-old said.

“The Egyptians are playing a psychological game, saying that we won’t be able to score in Kaduna. This is wishful thinking from them as goals will surely flow into their net, we just need to be precise and convert our chances,” Samuel concluded.

Egypt currently lead Group G with six points, ahead of the double header against Nigeria as look to qualify for the African Cup of Nations for the first time since 2010.
