Erstwhile Super Eagles head coach, Christain Chukwu believes Super Eagles 2-0 win against Niger Republic in a friendly encounter on yesterday will serve as a morale booster ahead of their next
African Cup of Nations qualifier against Egypt.
The former African champions were far from convincing in their first game under Sunday Oliseh against Tanzania last Saturday, escaping with a point despite the hosts dominating for most part of the game.
After watching the Eagles beat the Mena courtesy of strikes by Ahmed Musa and Moses Simon, Chukwu said that the win has put the team in a good stead ahead of their next game against Egypt.
“It was disappointing to see the Super Eagles labour so hard without making any meaningful impact against Tanzania last weekend.” Chukwu said.
“But I believe this win against Niger is good for the morale of the team.
“They face a massive task against Egypt in their next qualifying game and need to go into that game in confident mood.”
