FLASH| Siasia Vows to Destroy Egypt
|Interim head coach of Nigeria’s national soccer team Samson Siasia on Wednesday said he plans to crush Egypt with goals when the two nations meet twice in an African Cup qualifier later this month.
Siasia said his plan may not be impossible, noting the feat was achieved in 1977 when Nigeria thrashed Egypt 4-0 in a world cup qualifier played at home, in the southwestern state of Lagos.
“We can recreate Oct. 1977; why not?” the coach said while fielding questions from reporters in Abuja.
He added: “We have invited the players who are capable of getting the job done”.
Nigeria are two points behind the Egyptians on the Group G table of the African Cup of Nations qualifier, with the Pharaohs having eight goals already while the Super Eagles have only scored two goals.
The two teams will first meet in Nigeria on March 25 before proceeding for a second leg in Egypt on March 29.
