A top official of the Super Eagles of Nigeria says there is no scare in the camp of the team ahead of team’s clash against the Libyan national team, a view corroborated by team’s media head, Toyin Ibitoye. No injuriy worries only selection worries is the problem here.
The Nigerian team is however wary of the Libyan team as the team, which presently plays in Tunisia is ready to return home amidst reports that the league which produced most of the players that will play against the Eagles on Saturday are from the Libyan League, that should start next week.
Already, the new Finance Minister who was announced on Wednesday has said he will pay all outstanding bills due to the national team in a bid to ensure that they make it to the Cameroon 2019 Nations Cup. The Libyans who currently lead the group with South Africa, coming second are confident that they can make it to the championship and Nigerian Coach Genrart Rohr, said his side has to be cautious in approaching the game.
“We are ready, calm and calculated and I think we can take this and the Tunisian game on Tuesday”, Ibitoye told SportsDay. The Libyans are expected in Nigeria through Lagos via Uyo on Thursday afternoon. “They will be well received”, declared an NFF official
