Super Eagles Coach Salisu Yusuf, yesterday urged supporters to stand behind his players as they hope to put behind the unlucky performance in the opening match Against Rwanda.
“We are expecting another tough game because the Libyans did not only win their opening match, but played very well and will be more confident ahead of our match.
However, with more effort from my strikers and by God’s grace, we should get a positive result,” Salisu stated in yesterday’s pahead of the crucial match today.
Nigerians can only hope that Rabiu Ali, who wasted several chances on Monday will live up to expectation tonight against the Magreb opposition.
