The home Super Eagles have been advised to work hard and defeat the Syli Nationale of Guinea in Tuesday’s last Group C game of the ongoing African Nations Championship (CHAN) in Rubavu, Rwanda.

Nigeria top the group with four points while the Guineans have garnered only two points from previous two matches against Tunisia and Niger and will need a win over Nigeria in this encounter. The Eagles, however need a draw to guarantee a quarter final ticket.

“We believe the Super Eagles should not be complacent in this match which we consider crucial in Nigeria’s march to glory,” Globacom said in a statement issued in Lagos on Monday.

“So far, the Eagles have done well in Rwanda and we believe they have the capacity to scale the Guinean hurdle into the quarter finals,” the statement added.

The next generation network expressed confidence in the ability of the Eagles’ coaching crew to evolve the winning formula that would overwhelm fellow West Africans.

“The fact that the Eagles have shown their scoring prowess in the tournament also gives us the confidence that Nigeria will prevail and we urge the players not to relent in their efforts until the match is won,” the statement further said, adding, “it is not over until it is over.”

Globacom also tasked the Nigeria Football Federation, NFF, not to spare any effort at motivating the players and technical crew to grab the quarter finals ticket.

“We believe that the competition does not get more crucial than this and we urge the team to give the match against Guinea total concentration,” Globacom said.
