Coach of FRSC Football Club of Abuja, Akinade Onigbinde, on Thursday called on the Super Eagles to see Friday’s 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifier against Algeria as an all-important match.
Onigbinde said in Abuja that this would help them get a good result which would then elevate the team in the FIFA ranking. He said the match was capable of either improving or negatively affecting the country’s position in the global football ranking.
The coach described the Nigeria/Algeria match as a determinant for Nigeria’s preparations for the World Cup, and urged the players to shun laxity and complacency. He said the team should not succumb to pride or over-confidence, adding that this could result in concession of defeat.
The Super Eagles will face Algeria in Constantine on Friday in their final match of the 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifiers.
