Samuel Kalu Explains Why Super Eagles Need Early Goal Against Libya


Bordeaux winger Samuel Kalu has called on his teammates to make sure they get a goal very early into their game against Libya tomorrow in one of the games of the AFCON 2019 Qualifiers.


Kalu said the key to having a good result is scoring early as it puts the opponents on the back foot especially visiting teams who are normally set up to defend.

According to Kalu, they expect the Libyans to defend in numbers early into the game but he is urging his teammates to ensure that they breach the defence of the visitors very early.

” Most teams playing against Nigeria defend a lot. Libya will no doubt try to defend from the start of the game. It’s left for us to interpret correctly all what we’ve been taught by the coaches and score early “, Kalu told

” An early goal will calm our nerves and at the same time unsettled Libya. It’s important we find a way of scoring early. Hopefully we will”.
