Aminu Balele Kurfi, a member of the NFF Technical and Development Sub- Committee, has posited that the Super Eagles must get a good result against seven times winners Egypt in their first AFCON 2021 Group D match on Tuesday as a signal of its ambition to win the title in Cameroun, Completesports.com reports.
Kurfi, who is also the chairman of Katsina State Football Association, said that all that the Super Eagles need to do to win the AFCON is to remain focused and be united all through the tournament.
“Egypt will be tough, but I don’t see them beating the Super Eagles. Worse case scenario is we get a draw. Super Eagles must show the world that they have what it takes to win the AFCON 2021 by playing the Pharaohs hands down and get a result, Kurfi told Completesports.com.
“We know they have Mohammed Salah, but we also have some young and talented players like Sadiq Umar, Awoniyi, Ndidi and a host of others who can score goals that will give us victory. They should worry about how to stop our attackers. Eagles should make them realize that Salah alone cannot make a forest,” the former chairman of Katsina United FC stated.
Kurfi added : “the Eagles will be at home in Garoua because the place is inhabited mostly by Nigerians and we have been mobilizing our people in that country to come and give our team all the support required to qualify from the group as winners and remain there for the knock-out stage”
Aminu Balele Kurfi also expressed confidence in the ability of the Super Eagles’ technical crew led by Augustine Eguavoen to steer the team to victory, adding that with his assistants, they can inspire the Eagles to win the fourth AFCON title for Nigeria.
