The Technical Assistant to coach of the Super Eagles of Nigeria Nabil Trabelsi says the Super Eagles will approach tonight’s game against Algeria with the mindset of picking up a win despite their qualification for the World Cup.
Nigeria are already through to the World Cup next year in Russia, meaning tonight’s game is off little importance to the team but Nabil insist the Nigerian team are not taking the game lightly.
Despite the series of changes made to the starting line up, Nabil insist Nigeria still have a lot in terms of quality to give the Algerians a good fight tonight in Constantine.
“Contrary to what some people think, this game is very important for us, even if we have already qualified, we have a status to defend, we are going to tackle this match seriously. Our goal is to complete these qualifications with a win and thus preserve our invincibility “, he said.
“Algeria will certainly look to pick their first victory for the honor, so I expect a very competitive game on both sides, we know the strengths and weaknesses of the Algerian team”, he concluded.
