Egypt national Team  manager  Hector Cuper yesterday spoke on the double header against the Super Eagles on March 25 in Kaduna and March 29 in Alexandria, insisting that he has the magic wand to ensure that Eagles do not qualify for next year’s African Cup of Nations in Gabon.

Cuper started by insisting that comments by coach Samson Siasia would have no effect on his players performance.

“These types of comments should not affect our morale because if they  did,  we would  become a team with no identity, and we would not  deserve to represent Egypt,” he said.

He also claimed that  while  Nigeria have a lot of great players with pace and skill, Egyptians possess  the abilities required to win.

“The  Ghana debacle  will not be repeated, and we can beat the Nigerian national team so I promise we’ll  give everything in this match, but I cannot promise a win outright,” he added.

The former Valencia manager also defended his decision to call up  Hamada Tolba and Essam El-Hadary:

“I chose Hamada Tolba because  he has the characteristics  for the kind of left-back that  I need for the  two games against Nigeria, and Essam El-Hadary is putting in  good performances with Wadi Degla.”
