AFCON qualifier: Eagles in Sfax to pick maximum points -Akinwumi

By George Aluo
The Super Eagles are targeting nothing but the maximum points in today’s away tie in Sfax, Tunisia against the Mediterranean Knights of Libya.
The Eagles go into the game still basking in the euphoria of the 4-0 bashing of the Libyans at home last Saturday.
Nigeria’s leader of delegation to the match, Barrister Seyi Akinwumi who is the first Vice President of NFF said yesterday ahead of the game that nothing but the three precious points would be good enough.
“We have come here determined to pick the three points at stake and make the road much smoother for us towards Cameroon 2019. The players did a great job in Uyo on Saturday and all they need is step up a gear here and amass another three points.
“We have confidence in the players that we have here, as well as the technical crew, and we believe they will do the job,” Akinwumi said.
Nigeria lie second on the Group E table with six points, one less than leaders South Africa, ahead of The Matchday 4 battles. South Africa are also away today to Seychelles in Mahe Island.
Match officials for the encounter in Sfax are already in town for the game starting at 7pm Tunisia time (same time as Nigeria), with Botswanan official Joshua Bondo as the referee.
