Cape Verde vs Nigeria: Coach Sure Super Eagles Will Make It 9 Points Against CAR

Ifeanyi Ubah, Coach of  FCT Abuja Municipal Area Council (AMAC) Under-15, has expressed satisfaction in the Super Eagles performance and urged them to beat Central Africa Republic (CAR) in their next match.

Ubah told NAN on Tuesday that the Super Eagles defeating Cape Verde 2-1 was commendable.

“I have no doubt in my mind that these players will again make Nigeria proud in their next match against CAR,“ he said.

He also pointed out that Super Eagles confronted Cape Verde without any of its English Premier League (EPL) stars.

Cape Verde is one of the countries listed on the UK’s COVID-19 “red list”, thus players in the EPL were barred from travelling to CAR.

“Super Eagles played without their keys Britain-based players, Kelechi Iheanacho, Wilfred Ndidi, William Troost-Ekong, Alex Iwobi, Joe Aribo, Leon Balogun and Oghenekaro Etebo

“Well, I am optimistic the Super Eagles will pick the maximum point but they must be very careful in their next match against CAR,” he said.

The Eagles dominated but Cape Verde Dylan Tavares scored in the 19th minute. Gernot Rohr's men, however, levelled 10 minutes later when Victor Osimhen scored Nigeria’s first goal of the game.

“With the 2-1 result in favour of Nigeria, the country has garnered six points from two games to occupy the topmost of Group C,” he said.

Ubah urged the technical crew to turn its attention on CAR game as the Eagles' opponents would be fighting to collect a win.
