‘Eagles Plan To Beat Tunisia’—Amodu


Super Eagles’s Chief coach, Shuaibu Amodu, has declared that his team plan to win their first four qualifying matches, which include home and away games against main rivals, the Carthage Eagles of Tunisia, to ensure they qualify for the 2010 World Cup in South Africa.

Super Eagles’s Chief coach, Shuaibu Amodu, has declared that his team plan to win their first four qualifying matches, which include home and away games against main rivals, the Carthage Eagles of Tunisia, to ensure they qualify for the 2010 World Cup in South Africa.

The confident coach, who took Nigeria to a bronze-medal outing, at the Mali 2002 Africa Nations Cup, declared that “My target is to win our first four games and then we are almost through, arithmetically.

“With 12 points and two games left, we would have clinched the qualification ticket to the 2010 FIFA World Cup in South Africa (from Group Two), because we would have a home game to take us to 15 points.’’

The final phase of the qualifying series opens in March 2009, with Nigeria taking on Mambas of Mozambique, in Maputo, in the opening match.

Amodu assured that Nigeria will win this game as part of the strategy to win the group, which also comprises Harambee Stars of Kenya and the Tunisians.

“We want to beat Mozambique convincingly with goals to top the table from the blast of the whistle. The Tunisians also have an away game against Kenya and we expect that they would also want to beat the Harambee Stars, in Nairobi,” he predicted.

“If they succeed and we too do the same to Mozambique, what would count would be the goals difference,’’ he said. After the game in Maputo, Nigeria will host Kenya, then take on Tunisia, first away, before hosting them in Abuja.

Only the overall winners of the group will qualify for the World Cup while the top three teams earn their passage to the 2010 Africa Cup of Nations in Angola.
