The coach of the senior national team of Sudan Burhan Tia says the Super Eagles of Nigeria opening win against Egypt showed their strength but his team won’t be looking into it that much.
Sudan will tomorrow take on Nigeria in the second round of game in the ongoing 2021 Africa Cup of Nations in Cameroon, while Nigeria started their campaign with a win, Sudan were held to a 0-0 draw by Guinea Bissau.
With Nigeria needing a win to seal passage to the round of 16 of the tournament, Sudan will be all out to also pick their first win of the tournament to keep their chances of progressing from the group alive.
Tia says although Nigeria defeated Egypt, his team will be working on tactics that will help them upstage the Super Eagles when both teams clash tomorrow.
“We want to try to play football and the key thing for us is the three points at stake. We have set objectives and we are ready to achieve it”, the coach said at the post match conference ahead of tomorrow’s game.
“We know that Nigeria is a great side. They are going to be looking in good shape and we have a great team also. Nigeria played against Egypt and they won. It’s a football game and Nigeria is a great team known worldwide. They have taken part in many competitions but I want to say that the team want to win.
”Nigeria have their own advantage, we know the team very well. This match is very crucial and we have mapped out strategies to get a positive result”, he concluded.
